Default Amble West Allotments

Putting in some new fence posts in my allotment. Digging down 24 inches. Near the bottom of the hole is a layer of ash. Bottles and bits and bobs down there.
I knew there was ash there from past digging. Others have mentioned digging bottles up there as well.

I'm under the impression it is thicker towards West Avenue road.

First hole I hit a Turnbull and Williamson bottle. I actually think I broke this one with the spade.

I could kick myself as this is a type I've not seen before:
