    Looks quite old, I did try checking the patent number but it didn't come up, thought might give an indication of the age, perhaps it isn't a UK patent. They do look quite unusual though.

    Thread moved as perhaps the Technical > Troubleshooting > Bodywork & Interior section wasn't maybe quite the right one for this?

    Cant find exact match, but I reckon these are tactile block paving, also reffered to as blister or hazard block paving. The type you see at pedestrian crossings. The legs on the bottom I have no answer for, unless its to make it easier to fit them at an angle if the pavement drops towards the roadside ?!?!

    All just my guess not actually fact I am afraid

    Shot in the dark, they could be some sort of old boot scraping brick to get mud of shoes before going indoors, if you look at some old houses they have a recess with an iron scrape bar in the middle.

    That or it's a dinosaur lego set.
