|Name:||Undated inhumation and Neolithic flint flake|
In 1974 a collection of human skeletal remains were recovered from a trench here. The size of the trench suggested a contracted inhumation but no date was assigned to this burial. A flint flake from a polished Neolithic flint axe was also recovered from the trench spoil.
