Looks like it has had a threaded plate bolted on, the bolts cut flush, and then staked with a centre punch to stop them unscrewing. A classic Blacksmith repair.

A classic case of suggesting that either to seek a spare part or nipping down to you local foundry to see if they can cast another one. That is a serious bodge !

Good old traditional bodge-up.

Interesting bodge but it's obviously been there a long time, so presumably did what was needed.

Part of its history, I'd keep it like that as it adds to its appeal.
