|Name:||Late Saxon and medieval finds|
Fragments of Late Saxon and medieval pottery have been recovered by metal detecting at this location. Many of the medieval fragments were inconsistently fired suggesting that this is waste from a medieval pottery production site. An unusual lead weight, perhaps a weaving shuttle, was also found.
