Found in front garden of 42 Langley Green by :
1 Palaeolithic broken "Acheulian" flint handaxe (upper half). See drawing (S1). Information from (S2). This discovery was first reported in (S3) and it is also listed in (S4), which wrongly ascribes it to Loddon parish. The handaxe is also noted in (S5), (S6) and (S7), although no additional information is given.
