MANHOLE COVER LOVERS

There must be billions of them in the world. We pass them every day. We walk on them. We do not take any notice of them. They are heavy, and usually made of cast iron. They come in many different shapes, sizes and patterns. Look, and you will find them everywhere.

What are they? MANHOLE COVERS, that provide access to local service systems such as water, electricity, gas, and telecommunications.

Post photos of any interesting ones you find here.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SENT BY PIP-- TWO MANHOLE COVERS FROM ST AUGUSTIN'S CHURCH IN PARIS

'Why are they different?'

Because they come from the INSIDE of the Church.*

To date, I, and you, have been focussing on 'External' Manhole Covers -- in the streets, on the pavements, etc, but here we have a whole new category of Manhole Covers -- 'Internal' ones.

I must admit I had never thought about these before.

So please look around and see if you can find some other Internal ones. Thanks, Happy Huting and regards, Val

* They are for it's heating system
