I am used to seeing chains down at the waterside,but not outside a field.
I assume the farmer has a use for them.
Or perhaps he is just a member in the Farming Section of the RAS !!

Can't think what use such substantial chains could be to a farmer: but handy having them just in case you happened by.

Well I reckon he plants the links in october and then harvests rusty chains in August!
Well spotted. Ican see you go miles for a good crop of rust.
Farmers used to drag bundles of chains attached to big frames across fields to break up dry clay when I was young, but idon't know whether it is still done

All sorts of use for chains on a farm---even on our tiny farm we have a chain with a big hook--- used it a few times to pull a car out of the mud after a flood, also to drag a tree and a few other things--- real farmers have all sorts of other uses--such as what Annette suggested

not so happy when they drag them on the road tho!

Great rust here!

Farming is tough nowadays and farmers are constantly being told to diversify. This farmer has had the intelligence and foresight to create a specialist tourist attractions for photographers.

Having consulted my oracle (aka Nick (Nikshot)) he says those chains are showing all the signs of having been in salt water and mud. Me, I wouldn't have a clue, I like those pretty white ones with the orangey spots, would look good with some flowers I have recently captured. Any chance of you acquiring a few links and sending them down to Cornwall pleaseWinkWinkWinkWinkWink

The chains knew you were gonna be there, Mick. [Probably from a Twitter feed] Everyone wants their 15 minutes (or 1000 pixels) of fame and chains are no different. Except maybe the missing link.
