  1. Oh no I hoped someone would have the answer by now Kath :) I think it's used to tether something, just not sure what.. I'll be back to see if anyone guesses ...

  2. Some kind of fancy mooring? It's very cool.

  3. Not so dangerous after all.. For tying horses perhaps?

  6. I would think for the horses, as well.

    Now I won't get that song out of my head anytime soon.

  8. I think the horse tethering is the most likely answer...although it was fairly high on the wall...This again was in the Castello di Amaroso in Napa. It was designed after extensive research about medieval castles...so it seems that the horse tether would make sense...there was no description as to what this was so I can't give a definitive answer!!!

    Sorry William!

  10. If the round part in the front is separate from small hook, maybe for portable lanterns of torches. Otherwise I would go with tethering animals.
