    The paving slabs don't look in good condition.

    They must have been stolen to order to fit an existing garden/drive.

      I know Storrington. Most of it is rough as old nails.

      It does look like a nick to order of 'aged' slabs.

        We get a lot of this over neck of the woods but not to that scale. Isn't unheard of for someone to put a post on the local community facebook site that 4 or 5 slabs have been removed from their path. Same general consensus is they are taken to fit a job, probably to replace a load that got stolen

          In my old childhood neck of the woods manhole covers are frequently nicked and the metal sold as scrap. Always makes an interesting drive when going back to see my Mom and suddenly there's a gaping hole in the road!!

            I meant to post this, glad someone else remembered

            I planted a small row of laurels on my boundary last spring, against a quiet country road. Maybe 6 2' plants which cost me about £3 each. The next morning, some bugger had pulled them all up.

              That's a lot of effort for £3 per plant.

                That's what I thought. I was amazed anyone even noticed they were there.

                  They're doing quite well now, look lovely along my fence line

                    Just pulled them up, or actually half-inched them?

                    If they were just pulled up then maybe some rustic type objected to a plant whose leaves are toxic - Just one or two leaves contain enough cyanide to kill a horse!
