Notes about this historic site

Find of a Post Medieval stone mortar.

1 A stone mortar was found a short time ago in the mud when cleaning out a small pool on a farm at Ufton. The mortar is cut out of a piece of the local hard lias limestone. It is 20 cm in diameter and 15 cms high, with a bead round the rim. On its side are carved ‘cross-keys’, a five-pointed hollow star and the name IOHN HILES. From the character of the block letters it can hardly be older than the C17.
