Finsbury Park Compost Giveaway
I went to this last Saturday and they gave us 2 bags of compost each but they had a topsoil pile as well which they said we could help ourselves to.
Topsoil above as you can see everyone got stuck in
So I duly did and this is what I found in the top soil in one of the bags when I had got it home, the other bags went to the allotment.
A George V farthing, badly corroded but you can see the V for George and the outline of his face. On the tails side you can just make out the shield of Britannia.
What a lucky find from a giveaway pile of topsoil!
