So the posts are obvious but what was their purpose (Andy, you probably know the answer so feel free to post a red herring or 2).

Are they for some oyster or other fish (red herrings :D ) or crustacean farming?

Hi Tim,

That's a logical but wrong guess. They were there to catch something though...but not 'fishy'.

Hi Richard,
I do indeed know the reason for the planting of this now long-dead forest...though when I too Renate there this spring, she failed to guests what the Story behind these...:-)
Neider Herrings (Red or otherwise) nor any other Swimming fish or device was the reason for planten these...

Nope, but there is a very loose connection to your suggestion.

Connection eh?, are they to secure cables for undersea telephone or telegraphy cables?

Or, perhaps part of a wire array for early radar?
