    I have just moved into a new house and found these items in the shed. Any idea what they are?

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    Third item is stabilisers for an aluminimum ladder, possibly step ladder. It fixes at the bottom to make the feet width wider, and thus the ladder more stable. Maybe will only fit the ladder that used to go with them.

    The last picture looks like step ladder extension feet.

    The first might be some wall - hung pegboard-type thing.

    Thanks. Makes sense as a ladder was also left in the shed.

    Wonder if the other item could be soldering iron tips or some sort of rack?

    First items look almost like bar top drip tray from pub - but obviously aren't.

    God how I miss the pub!! :(

    Definitely. Pub drinking was a social thing. Drinking at home is boredom, and without the other bar flies to talk to, I tend to drink more now. Almost 2nd bottle of brandy plus beers, wine and port vanished since lockdown. Cellar is emptying.

    Always rather have a lock-in than a lockdown! (y)

    First item looks like tread plates that you fit to those folding ladders when in trellis mode.
