I have seen coins inserted in cracks in tree trunks and rocks at various locations, but these had been hammered in to form the shape you see. This location is at least 300 yards from the nearest road and I can't see a reason why someone would carry all that loose change and a hammer in order to create this.

Strange, Skida, has it something to do with an art project on the grounds of Wallington Hall?

The moral of this picture could be: your money is safer in a fallen tree than in a falling bank.

Best regards, Claus

More likely to be something significant to modern Pagans, Claus, as this was on the opposite side of the river to the grounds of Wallington.

Unfortunately, it was all 2p and 1p pieces; if it had been silver coins I would have gone back with pliers! ;)
