Some lovely bottles there and my fave is that little beauty in the second post, third image down. Cor.
Funnily enough I showed a seasoned digger the photos today and he said its unusual, its got very light ribbing around it so I guess it was some sort of poison or something that wouldnt do you any good if you took too much of it :thumbsup:

The poison with embossing on the shoulder is a nice find as are the blue Woodwards . Good mix of domestic bottles .
An enjoyable read with some good results , great stuff .
Thanks Kb, you are correct on the Frank Coopers, I reckon I found bits of 4 or 5 of them but all very smashed unfortunately. The landowner and I decided that it must of been dumped from a fairly big house which is off of his property, there is nothing closer on the old maps but its about 300m away so seems a long way to bring the rubbish. :thumbsup:

Always enjoy reading about bottle digging and this sounds like a very good session.
Plenty of good photos, think you now have a 2nd hobby.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
