Notes about this historic site

1 (Marginal). Exhibited by E P Shirley. An iron prick-spur covered with a white metal, found in digging the foundations of a bridge on the E and W junction railway in the parish of Walton, not far from the Foss. It is presumably 12th century but its width of 11.5 cm seems considerable for a spur of that date.
2 Noted by Ordnance Survey.
