We returned to a well hammered favourite this weekend. Even though it has been well done over there are still areas of undug to be found, and there are also a lot of good quality bottles been left behind in the dug parts.
Although nothing of note came out on the day, there were plenty of bottles to keep us occupied, and the day's finds reinforced our belief that this tip served a town that should by rights be known as the Hypochondriacs' Capital of North Wales. Yet more local chemists appeared, together with a few Boots bottles.
Some of the better items found included a nice Dobson's Patent codd, a 6oz. pictorial Ruthin skittle (sadly aqua not amber), a beautiful little green glass perfume, and an unbelievably crude small size amber Gilbey's chestnut bottle. Again a number of lid bases came out, but no lids to pair up with them (where do they go?).
One unusual find was a shear lip sauce bottle embossed "J. Morris & Co./Bootle/Ripe Peach Sauce." It was one we hadn't seen before, and personally I wouldn't fancy tasting it one little bit.
This tip is pretty easy digging, the part we were on being about four foot in depth and no capping. Take off the turf, straight into bottles, and off you go.
Forgot all about the camera until the end of the day. Stephen's haul had already been bagged up, so no photos. Below are my finds.
