A stone hone was found 'at a considerable depth' in Mill Street, Bakewell, in January 1844, during excavations for a sewer. It was described as a 'thick celt-shaped instrument of fine hard slate smoothly rubbed and slightly hollowed by sharpening celts upon it', seven inches long, three inches greatest width and one inch thick. It is now in Sheffield City Museum, ref J. 93-134. (1)
