Notes about this historic site

1 Mesolithic. Field survey in 1978 revealed waste cores from which artefacts had been flaked until the core was too small to facilitate further striking, waste flakes, microliths, wasters of the micro-burin type, blades and scrapers concentrated in this area. Part of the immediate area has been destroyed by industrial developments and pasture fields in the area prevented a full survey.
2 Listed. No further details.
