Interesting to say the least, but those do look sound connections, despite the Danger.

Certainly different! Not sure why you wouldn't just run the cables a bit further so they go straight into the board tho?! Unless the cables have been changed by someone as a bodge job that didn't want to open the unit!!

it could be though those are exisitng circuits and the new cu has been moved higher to allow extra cable from above circuits to be made linger so those couple needed extending.
have a feelin you me be on the right lines there Badger! ;)

perhaps something previously mounted on the lower board...

new board fitted above and CU moved / replaced onto new board! :) ;)

thats nothing compared to this

This was left like that for years. its a TT system, no rod, no main bonding etc. IIRC, EFLI was somewhere around 1000 ohm (most likely earthed by unsheathed T&E lying on a damp floor )

(Note: the screwdriver is there for a reason.... the MCB doesnt fit!)
