SK 151 613. Neolithic flints and a complete stone axe of Craig Llwyd type were recovered from the soil used as make up on the Tissington Trail, at Hartington Station Quarry. It may suggest the survival of a Neolithic site in the immediate vicinity. (1). The context of this discovery has also been described as an erosion patch ("baring soil") of about a one acre area, adjacent to Station Quarry. The flints and axe were found by L.B. Cooper in or before 1970. (2).
