    Hi,



    Appreciate if anyone can help, over the year/year & half, I have collected about 6-7 of these heavy square block things, but cannot pin-point what they are or where they have come from.

    see link

    One of them smashed a window in my conservatory recently, but I cannot seem to find out where they come from or the direction where they come, as the direction backs into another garden. Even the police are bit puzzled of the direction, and don't seem to think its an attempt to break in as the window that got smashed was hit on the opposite end of where the handle/lock is so dismissed it as a attempt to break in.

    Appreciate any help

    Thanks
    Eilz

    The first thing I thought of is the centre of the blade of an electric lawnmower, on re-reading your post possibly an agricultural mower deck blade broken up ? or something as if it has disintegrated and holding bolt come off...pinenot :)
