The owner of a Herefordshire home keeps findings valuable antiques whenever she tends to her garden.
Her haul includes a diamond ring, solid gold Victorian watch, Edwardian chainmail bag, brooches, medals and coins – and even an ancient plough. Long, 57, first hit a stash of hundreds of Victorian bottles at her home.
Auctioneers Biddell and Webb, of Birmingham, say the diamond ring and watch alone could be worth several hundred pounds each.
