Imperial Period Clearance Material

Description of this historic site

An assemblage of imperial period pottery, glass and claypipes were discovered at Church End, Ansley. The material probably represents clearance material from a near by Inn.

Notes about this historic site

1 A deposit of potter and glasswere exposed during roadside cleaning works and recovered by a local historical society. The pottery was comprised of both local wares and those from Staffordshire and elsewhere. The latter, together with the small number of clay tobacco pipes recovered, date to the deposition of the assemblage to c1780. The range of material present indicates that it was likely to have originated from the nearby coaching inn, The Red Lion.
