Notes about this historic site

1 Hoard of six coins. Sixpences. English. One Mary (sola), three Elizabeth and two unknown. Latest dates to 1573. It is possible that the hoard is in a secondary location as several antiquities have been found including two Babylonian cylinder seals. An earlier vicar may well have been an antiquarian. Found at the Old Vicarage, in the garden SW of the windmill mound.
