The 'slab' - which looks complete, is about 2ft by 3ft - if the actual measurements are in cms than it's likely to be well post war - but if it is 2 x 3ft it's really quite small (even with a brick surround). I can't imagine the markings are anti-slip - if only because it can't be more than 2 paces long and probably less. It may well have been recovered from some other use and then re-used in the garden. It could be the base for a burner of some sort, for instance for use in a greenhouse. The cross hatchings could be decorative, or could be to wick away moisture, so whatever was standing on it didn't get waterlogged.
