    Not sure that Teller mines would find their way to the UK, but Britain also produces Anti Tank mines similar to the Teller.
    Perhaps they were part of the UK coastal defences.

    I can't find any records of what British mines were similar to this. If it's German, no idea how it got there (I know munitions were dumped off of Aberdeen) but still doesn;t explain how if it is german it got here.

    The article and photo are unrelated, the image is photostock and unrelated to the Windfarm finds.

    PS the picture in the article is from photostock, nothing to do with windfarm muntions the article writes about

    How would we know that it was a stock photo?
    You asked what it could be and got answers.
    Give them a call then to ask what it was save us wasting our crystal ball magic

    I asked Energyvoice (the website) for more details on what the object was. They didn't know and the editor said it used the image from the Royal Navy on an unexploded bomb.

    Forgetting the article, I wanted to know what the object was in the photo as I do not recognise it.

    It just looks like a mine with the detonator assembly missing but what type we are not sure
