Macabre discoveries at the bottom of the garden!

As we are currently bringing our dilapidated and run down allotment back into a good state of repair, we need to sift through a mountain of junk - most of it had been buried under debris and soil. And that is just before we can access the falling down sheds that lurk menising in the dank shaded corner next to the swamp.

The more we dig up the more we expect to find, and we are always finding more junk - from shoes to beer bottles, bed frames and kitchen sinks. We always are always expecting to find a corpse of the previous tenant, which would be interesting for sure, but what I would really love to find is an air raid shelter from WWII or a nuclear bunker from the cold war times.

It would be a discovery like that that would be a find of a lifetime, a novel waiting to be written!

For how long has this place been left unattended?

That sounds something interesting. Hope you find a bunker and your wish of writing book becomes a reality.

Judging by the evidence we have found - 28 to 30 years!

Have you bought this place and you are now developing it?

We just rent it for not much a year, the idea is to grow our veggies and chickens on the plot. It is a big garden area that people rent out chunks of to grow veg, keep chickens and bees etc. It's a recreational garden. . . but ours had loads of rubbish and junk on which we need to clear out first!

Who knows, there might be more surprises coming up in the near future. History unfolds...

Yikes! I've got so much of my own junk to sort through and dispose of right now that I can't even imagine an archaeological dig through someone else's. I hope you find something really special in there, and hopefully not the skeleton.
