...stop cock covers.
These two are larger than most I have seen.
They are about 8 inches wide, and 9 inches high.
Hinged at the top. Cast iron.
It doesn't look like they have been opened in a long time.
The 'mark' below the writing on the left hand pic is the 'British Kite Mark'. It means the item has been made to a set standard. The water caught in it, is hiding the detail (taken on a rainy day).
The cover on the right would appear to be quite a bit older than the other.

I have discovered that this sort of thing photographs better when wet, however the water standing in parts of the casting spoils the detail- so damp but not wet is the answer!
