Hi I found this back in 2008 while digging out a pond in the garden, it weighs just over 2kg, a magnet sticks to it and it doesn't leave a mark after being scraped against the back of a tile, just wanting a professional opinion please?
No, it is not a meteorite.
It is iron slag, ie. waste from iron mining and smelting operations.
Its presence in your area does not necessarily indicate there was iron mining/smelting nearby; such waste material can be sold or disposed of and hence end-up far away from where it originated.
This might be of interest
