Loading documents & images
At approx. SK400244 is a large area of broken flint spread over at least an acre and very clearly visible when the crops are not too advanced. (1)
The flint scatter lies on a prominent ridge and it has been tentatively suggested that it could have come from a ploughed down barrow [see SMR 31721]. Half of a broken loom weight, possibly of Bronze Age date, was picked up in this area in c. October/November 2011. (2)
