So:

It's metal
It appears to rotate about the 2 mid-points
There is what appears to be some sort of handle on the right
It is set into concrete
It is about window sized (c. 1m X 60cm)
It generally remains vertical

Does it collect anything, or prevent anything from going through?

Maybe they're not handles. They could be liquid overflow outlets.

Wild stabbing....

This sounds like it is actually the name of a small village in the Cotswolds. Near Upper Slaughter.

Yup, could be. I'm curious about the 2 horizontal lines in the middle of the "tray" that look asthough they could be reinforcements between the outlets/handles.

Upper Slaughter is a beautiful little village.

The next village to where I lived in Suffolk was called Nedging with Naughton. I thought that sounded a TV program about an East Anglian pastime, similar to "Fishing with Wilson".

"Oi'm goowin nedging"

It is not set into concrete.
It is larger than a window, or two windows.
Vertical, well, not usually...
It'll rotate a bit but not around the middle section.

I have it! It's the NZ version of the Shroud of Turin. I can clearly see the face of Jesus there! This shows that God does exist, and that He can do wonderous things that we are not able to explain. I must throw myself down in humble genuflection. Beg for forgiveness, you non-believers! He is alive and well and living in a metal thing that twists a bit.

well, it's just that you're sort of 'down under' as compared to my location Mr Chem.
I wasn't sure it was rightly turned for me?

But looking at it, a pacific vista,  mirrored in a trough of some sort?
I see waves:)

A wheelbarrow perhaps:)

But no, I like my pacific vision best.
