    Dan,

    It looks very much like a tank for storing honey particularly with the filters.

    I saw one of these on the BBC2's victorian farm. It is to do with honey, I don't think its a store, but is used with a spinner thingy which acts like a centrifuge to get the honey off the comb

    like this (near the bottom of the page)..

    Thanks guys, but I don't think there is an apiary connection. The filters are very fine mesh, and there is a distinct whiff of diesel when the lid is removed...

    Cheers

    i would say its something to do with beekeeping, but i dont know, if it smells of diesel maybe they tried making honey out of the stuff :D

    Gary,

    No comparison, your tank is plain and not ribbed :D , and Dan honey filters are fine to stop lumps of bee and wax passing through :D . The Honey tank I had was used for water cooling purposes so why not put diesel in one 8O
