Couple of questions about Meregill Hole

Does anyone know where the long tangle of twin core/bell wire that was just down from the foot of the Mere pitch might have come from? It looks like the kind of wire that might have been used for a telephone system?

They may be elsewhere too, but on the third pitch between the p bolt route and the water there are some new (the drill dust is still there) petzl/hanger type bolts. Does anyone know what they're for/where they go?

I was there a couple of weekends ago and didn't spot either. The dive line through to the mere was trashed but no obvious wire. Not sure I would have spotted the Petzl anchors though as I'd already climbed up by then.

The wire was just down the slope from the foot of the pitch, in the opposite direction to the way on so easy to miss, but there was quite a lot of it!
