wind vanes at the iron works

It has been some time since I last published photos of wind vanes, but today I have the pleasure to present two cool vanes that I found today. They decorate a bell tower (to remind the workers of the time) and a mansion at an old iron works. This iron works has roots from – at least – the 15th century. The first documented iron production here dates from 1444. Its most glorious period was during the 18th and 19th centuries.
