'It was so heavy that we could barely dig it and nothing would grow, so the simplest solution was to bury it,' they explain from their quarter-acre garden overlooking countryside in Essex. Today, tonnes of unwanted clay lie hidden beneath three broad terraces that rise behind the Laytons' Victorian cottage. 'Originally, the garden was flat,' explains Corinne, 'but after installing a new cesspit, we had even more clay to get rid of, so the easiest thing was to hide it beneath terraces.'
