"At Scarthin Nick, in 'a perforated rock', 200 copper coins of 'Lower Empire', were found about 1800. Reynolds notices a find made '8 March 1795 at Scarthen Nick, a skeleton and 60 small copper coins of Licinius and the Constantines'. I do not know if this is a separate find or the same described differently". [see SMR 9736] (1)
It has been suggested that the 200 coin find was made when the limestone ridge was cut by Robert Arkwright, son of Richard Arkwright. (2)
