Originator:Middleton, S.
Summary:During work on a gas pipeline in 1988, three or possibly four hearths were observed after topsoil and spoil removal (to total depth of 1.20m) centred at above NGR. Burnt soil and charcoal overlay a heavily burnt clay layer overlying natural yellow clay. A small flint point was recovered from one hearth. Fields around the site yielded a scatter of worked flints (flakes, scrapers and knives) during topsoil stripping. A mesolithic date for the hearths is suggested.
