Fence in the lake

I’ve often wondered what the purpose is (if any) of this short section of fence that extends a few feet into the lake. There’s a gap on the shore (with the remains of a latch where a gate presumably once stood) so it serves no purpose in preventing passage. I guess it could be a holdover from before the lake was there (when it used to be a quarry) and was never removed when it was filled with water and the country park developed.

Whatever the case, it makes a nice subject for the occasional photograph.

      1. I cleaned it up and put a roll of slightly expired Kodak Ultramax through it the other day, but it’ll probably be a while yet before I get it processed and scanned. No obvious problems presented themselves while burning through the roll so I’m feeling pretty confident it’s working fine. Time will tell.

        In hindsight I probably should have shot a short roll of B&W instead of color so I could have developed it myself and determined right away whether everything is doing what it should be. I may still do that. I’ll report back to you when I’ve got results. Thanks for asking!
