Notes about this historic site

1 During excavation in 1975 a curving slot containing flint chips and some crumbly pottery was found. This was probably of Prehistoric date.
2 The curving slot (described as an irregular oval pit) was excavated further in 1978 and produced 38 flints and crumbly sherds of course pottery. Other areas produced flints from these excavations and there is a note of 21 sherds of Iron Age pottery but it is unclear where these are from.
3 Ditches will not pre-date Neolithic.
