Paths on allotment

I have just been putting in some paving bricks on my allotment. Someone a few doors up left them in their front garden with a help your self note. - So I have been lugging 8-10 bricks at a time in a rucksack up to my allotment and putting them down as a path. Bit of a strain but could not pass up an opportunity like a free path.

This now extends my path made from scaffolding planks, a few patio slabs and some sunken house bricks.

If only we were closer. I've got loads of bricks, good engineering ones and no scaffold boards for deep beds. I'd swap some gladly, saves maknig deep beds out of bricks i guess.....
