The mole hole to end all moleholes

I found a mole hill in the grass path. I dug down to see if I could find the run for a trap placement.

This is what we ended up with.


Mole hole 1


Another rock which is too heavy to move,just yet.


The rocks we did manage to move elsewhere.

Not photographed are the three bags of brick rubble removed from the hole.

And worst of all, no sign of the mole tunnel either.

    Did you by any chance have an OH who wanted some heavy digging work done? image

    For a pond possibly?

    No, we don't live in the mountains and the rocks come from all down the West coast of Britain, brought by glaciers in the last Ice Age and dumped here at the bottom of a huge lake, say about 100,000 years ago, As to why they are buried in our garden, your guess is as good as mine. The brick rubble and slate come from three 1804 houses which fell down in the 1960's and were bulldozed across the land. The boulders were obviously part of what was here then and indeed, some of them have lime mortar on them, but generally we have never been able to work out why they are in the garden.
