Spot the difference in a wintry scene from 2006 and a Spring scene from 2009 

Did you notice that the post appears to have shrunk!

Here is an even earlier scene of  a full-height postbut by March 2009 the makers’s plate was nearly underground

[We seem to recall that the post had been disturbed and there was worry locally that it would be stolen by metal thieves, so it had been concreted in (rather further into the ground than usual!) – Can anybody confirm?]

Here is an Octopber 2008 photo of the post with concrete marks and fresh earth
