What is it?

Has it anything to do with fish.

It’s not for growing watercress but that suggestion is warmer than JoCarroll’s

Is it pool or man made pond where they grow something. I’m sure I’ve seen something like this in Hampshire where they grow cress or something like that.

They look like disused tracks of some kind – but not on the ground (so not for trains) and not high enough to be some sort of steep funicular. I wonder if they had some sort of hanging thing that carried goods from a mine (say) to railway siding.

(I’m struggling here – you can tell!)

It’s been a while since I lasted posted a challenge. What are these?

Well done. It is a Chrismatory in Norwich Cathedral. The three vials contain the Holy oils used to anoint the sick or dying, for use in baptism and for use in the ordination of priest and consecration of bishops.

Is it lamp oil in the containers and is it used in a church

You are so very nearly there, but it isn’t water…

They look like bottle of liquid lit from above. So it could be a display of some type, perhaps bottles of holy water with some significance or the liquid helps diffuse the light, enter to amplify it of give it colour?
