A look at what interests me and keeps me sane in rural Powys.

And the Mystery Object was . . .
The mystery object again. Very carefully made. Cunningly wrought. As some of you guessed, a trap of some kind. It's actually a rat trap. It has a really strong mechanism - the dealer nearly took his fingers off when setting it to show us what it did! I should imagine any rat who fancied his chances grabbing the bait and doing a runner, was soon disabused of THAT notion - and pretty flat by then too! Probably a West Country rat trap (they grows 'em big down there!) and gosh, VERY affective!
