Still awaiting the Council Surveyor visit...
When i spoke with the surveyor on the phone a few days ago he said that a discussion with the fence builder had taken place, the fence builder had contacted the surveyor, but what was said exactly i don't know yet.
The surveyor said he'd visit here when next in the area. Don't know when that will be (?)
Meanwhile, i have repeatedly requested the neighbours to remove their little bit of forgotten spoil from my garden.
However, the spoil heap was [ see photo below]
low and spread out over an area of just a few square meters, and this rise in ground level had been compressed by the weight of the excavator machine.
So to make the spoil easy to see i went out into my garden with folk, rake, and a shovel, to expose it, and get my garden back to the level it was before the brick wall came down.
I managed to find my familiar round manhole cover [ this is my garden level guide ] the cover was buried under more than 6 inches of spoil, a mixture of pea-gravel, earth, concrete bits, and brick rubble.
There is also a section of the old brick wall which was also buried under about 6 inches of compressed spoil.
I did consider simply wheelbarrowing this spoil heap around to the neighbours side garden to let them have it back, but the amount is larger than i expected, and i don't want to escalate any hostility. I think a better plan is to request them to remove it whenever they're ready to in the next week or so.
They can't argue it's theirs with their old brick wall section uncovered...
