Micah Salt collected nearly a hundred pieces of Neolithic flint, including a worn horse-shoe scraper and seven trimmed flakes in the vicinity of a rough spot in a ploughed field at Staker Hill. The adjacent fields yielded few or no flints. It was thought that the fragments were too few to indicate factories of 'any permanent character'. (1) (The date of the find is not recorded, but was made just prior to 1900). (1,2).
