A 'preponderance of fire cracked stones' was found during excavations to the east of St Bride's Farm in 2012: '…the lack of ferrous material beyond inclusions in the sandstone and evidence of burning suggest that this is a prehistoric feature associated with small scale cooking or water boiling rather than an industrial site. …A very dark quadrant in the northeast quadrant of the pit may represent a part of the focus of the fire with a dump or scatter of blackened stones around it.'
