I've seen them lying in the woods before and assumed they were part of the old Garscube Estate House. Might be wrong? There is a good photo of it on this page (near the bottom)

Edit - looking at that photo there is not an obvious match so maybe they are not from the house after all.

Do you mean the big cylindrical concrete lumps at/on the bridge in Garscube estate ?
Surely that's what you're referring to as they are the only 'corrugated' 'stones' in there that I'm aware of.
I was told that their purpose was anti-tank bollards dating back to WW2 !
One of the 'custodians/security guards' who used to walk about with a single barrel shotgun told me that in the early '80s !
(I lived very nearby)....
Maybe he was at the wind-up ?! ::):
(The old mill site at the foot of Dawsholm road isn't part of Garscube estate).....

Oooops !!!!
I just had a look on Google earth and the things I mentioned have been removed 8O
Maybe they moved them and put/dumped them where you've found them !
Upload a pic to Flickr and post the link, it sounds like the same things as the sides of them were 'corrugated'....
