I found this in the garden whilst removing what was probably a weed.

It's black, quite heavy for the size, and shiny on all apart from one surface - which looks like the inside of an aero.

I think it's probably slag from a blast furnace - which begs the question - where did it come from? As the nearest blast furnaces - even if you go back a long way - must be 50 miles away.

Might your house have had a coal fire at some time?

I like the meteorite theory. I may report it to the neighbourhood watch group.

The house used to be a shop and they sold bags of coal from the yard. I once told my lad and his mate that there used to be a coal mine in the garden. Turned my back and there was a hole a foot deep in the middle of the lawn. That took some explaining to the mgmt.

I don't think it's coal though. Might try setting fire to it. There's also a disused railway line about 200m away and they used all sorts of stuff as ballast.

Who no doubt sent for the police to give them a good kicking and then bought the coal from Poland
