I have just visited a "yellow book" garden which has alkaline soil over chalk at one end, and acid soil at the other. The latter was washed down by torrential rains so many decades ago, from the top of a local hill of greensand. 

Now that's what I call  "buried treasure".

Fascinating geology Dove??

The shovel went clang again this weekend, this time I uncovered an 8" layer of solid chalk! lucky me.....

I dug up a golf ball today on the allotment. Had a chuckle to myself thinking of plot holders gone by, this guy must have gone down on the allotment to practice his swing...

My neighbours have driven loads of golfballs onto my paddock. They must have a vicious hook. Shame I don't do golf anymore.

We moved to this barn about 18 months ago and under the concrete have found number plates spanners wrenches, it was a breakers yard at some point. Also found horse shoes, so must have been used as a stable as well I presume
