A strange slab

June 30, 2021

A big slab of concrete has emerge in the middle of the garden, unearthed from beneath the flags and the concrete. It’s like something out of 2001: A Space Oddessey. I presume it’s an old concrete path they chose to bury rather dig up. I’m guessing it’s a relic of the Second World War, too allow residents to dash out to the air raid shelter. It might be even older. It could have been the original path that was laid when the house was built.

I haven’t quite decided what to do with it. I could leave it where it is, and just make sure there’s enough top soil to cover it so the lawn/meadow turf can still find water and sustenance. I could dig it up, but that would be a massive job. I’d need to bag it up and move it out.

If I could break a couple of lengths off, I could pave it and place it between the olive trees, with the garden bench on it. It could also go under the new shed. The next question would be how to move it, bearing in mind that, even as shorter slabs, it would be too heavy to lift.

I’ll think of something.
