BATS!!

BATS!!
Newdowns Head and Man and His Man, Cornwall.
The conical grids are to stop humans and large animals falling down these tin mine shafts and to allow the free to-ings and fro-ings of the many bats that colonise them.

Nor had I, Ulrich but it's a good idea. Before, they simple blocked them up with a cement slab and 1,000s of bats died each time.

It looks inteesting and is a good idea! I guess there are still plenty of open shafts around.

Every year there are stories of houses, gardens, etc disappearing down uncharted shafts. Yes, the County is riddled with them! Always best to stay on a path!

Just the place for the Famous Five! George would climb down on a rope to rescue Timmy, and they'd find find some hidden ingots or a kidnapped scientist.

Nor had I, Rosa until about 10 or so years ago. I could see that they were useful in preventing humans and animals from falling in but that was all, I thought. I only knew about the bats when I overheard a teacher with a group of schoolkids and he was explaining it. A few days later, by co-incidence, I read about it in a Cornwall magazine while waiting to get my hair cut! Now you see them all over Cornwall.
