I've been reliably informed by a brewer at Adnams that this piece of kit is a Pre Run Tank or Underback. It is used to collect the wort that comes off the Lautertun. I took the shot on my recent tour of the brewery. The tour is very informative, you get to taste lots of lovely Adnams and you get a free bottle of beer.
