This is some heavy (about 80kg each , apparently) duty recycling.

     

That’s a fairly big boot for comparison. I was going to stack 3 or 4 of them to make a planter. 

If anyone has any other ideas, just shout! Only found out I was getting some of them half hour ago  Big Grin

You wouldn't want one of them to fall on your foot!! Are they some sort of anchor chain??
I see them as edging to a path, like silver bells and cockle shells, either flat with a a rockery type plant in each hole or on edge. Depends how many you acquire.

I believe they are some very large chain links. Like the edging idea. Don’t know how many I’m getting. I know some are going towards moorings.

You could use them as edging turn them on their sides burying half, they do look heavy though.

I take it when you say they are chain links they are all separate, and if so to make planters with them I would advise pegging, tying or welding them to avoid any chance of them falling on someone's foot. I think they would look great set in concrete at an angle as edging, then planted with some sedums and the likes

Not getting the chain links now  Sad . Apparently the scrap man is willing to pay good money for them. Never mind I’m sure I’ll find something else unique to reuse / re purpose in my garden.

Never mind, you might have:-
1. Dropped one on your foot
2. Tripped over them
3. Found that iron was bad for your soil
4. Spent ages putting them in place, then changed your mind...........
