    Thanks for your replies everyone, I will update if I get round to getting it looked at in the museum. Although if it turns out to be a plumb line I may be laughed out of the place!  :D

    With a solid end, and no obvious place for a line.. you've got yourself an unfired bullet slug.

    Definitelt a bullet and of the type fired by Spitfires and Hurricaines during World War Two. I was a metal detectorist for a while and they do turn up with some regularity. I once found 22 in a line across a field which must have been fired from a plane.
    Luv Dave

    Good info. You've got to wonder what that field did to enrage the pilot though.

    That's nothing - some fields by the local factories are so full of burnt out incendiary bombs (German) and shrapnel and casings from Flak guns (ours) that you can't detect on them and I'm only in Cheshire which wasn't that badly hit.

    Looks like a dibber to me. At least part of it.
