Are we looking at a remnant of some sort of pump or sliucegate, do you know? In any case, nice counterpoint of mechanical/natural world.

I think it is part of a crane for hoisting stone blocks. This is Hay Tor quarry. Perhaps Phil can enlighten us if he sees this?

Yes, I think it's an old winch. Interesting place as there's still visible an unusual granite railway track built years ago by the quarrymen.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Does your photo quality ever drop below the five star level Andrew?
I should have looked you up when I was in Somerset a few weeks back!
