  2. I found one without the glass stopper today at about 85′ under the water in Carlisle Bay, Bridgetown, Barbados while diving looking for old bottles. I have a similar 2-part embossed Lea & Perrins bottle already, same bay, different location

    • Thanks Chris – that’s interesting. Sometimes rubbish was taken off-shore in barges and tipped at sea, but bottles were also thrown off boats and jetties. It sounds like you may have an underwater tipping ground. Tom

  3. Found one on Hayling Island near Portsmouth on a piece of ground that has a licence for two caravans and not used for probably 30 years as overgrown with Stinging Nettles and Brambles. No stopper but embossed as above.

    • Hi Colin, it sounds like that may be an old rubbish dump. Stinging nettles and brambles thrive on old dumps because they like loose, we-drained soil that is rich in phosphates. Dumps also are not the sort of site that can be easily built on or turned to agricultural use, so it isn’t uncommon to find them used as caravan sites, allotments, nature reserves, parks and similar.
