Towards the end of the first lockdown in 2020, like a lot of people, we found ourselves walking and exploring areas closer to home. In the bottom corner of the garden we share with a number of other properties are some derelict pig stys, we decided to have a closer look. Until that point we had thought there was nothing beyond them but a hedge row and fields. It was a bit like discovering the door to a secret garden. The hedge row turned out to be a hollow way/drovers track running approx 100m down the hill to a brook. A route down into the sunken lane lead us into a picturesque little ravine with a small stream running through it. It obviously hadn’t been used by anyone for a long time, when it had been, some areas had been used as a dumping ground. We found a few interesting little art deco medicine bottles, a sheep skeleton and some broken pottery. Nothing of any value but interesting for the children to look at. I have my own workshop where I restore vehicles for work and as my hobby. Every time we go for a walk in the countryside I day dream of finding the rusty remains of a pre-war vehicle abandoned somewhere. Halfway down the hollow way, sticking out of the ground, we found the rear axle of a vehicle. To say I was excited would be an understatement. I knew enough on first sight to see it was pre-war.
