Iron ring. A wrought iron ring of uncertain purpose; though possibly apt to serve as a nave band for a small wheel, there are many other possible functions for the object. The mass suggests good survival of the metal core, and so a relatively recent date is advanced. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900.
