Ropeway anchors

Ropeway anchor rings at head (left) and foot (right) of ropeway.

Iron rings, aproximately .12 m external diameter, on a shank set in a drilled hole which has then been filled with lead. Used to anchor the ropeway suspension ropes.

Although rusty, they show little sign of wear which suggests that the ropeway was not in existence for very long.
