    we are widening the drive. had some ancient concrete slabs - want to replace with gravel and perhaps slab pathways floating on gravel base

    Actually the old slabs were still pretty level.. I have lifted them and there is some dusty stone chippings - maybe some are 50 mm wide ( picture attached ) there is the add root here and there?

    plan is to smash up some hard core ( bricks and ancient red brick tiles ) - maybe spread this gravelly stuff over it.. whacker plate it down

    then get another few bags of MOT type 1 - and whacker plat that down... total 150mm ( ish )

    then 50 mm of 10 mm gravel ( ala Travis Perkins )

    am I on the right track? IMG_1508.JPG
