Part of a blast furnace?

This forged iron bar was found built into the wall at Newland Furnace. It is 5Ft 6in long. Could it be part of the furnace? A linkage from the waterwheel to the blowing cylinder perhaps?

You would possibly get more of a reply if you contacted the Historical Metallurgy Society, who specialize in this sort of thing.
