Did you notice that the post appears to have shrunk! [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 are 2 more pictures of it after it shrank.
