|Name:||Post medieval flint working site|
Fieldwalking collected a large number of worked flint flakes. Some of these may be prehistoric. In one area a small number of post medieval gun flint blades were recorded. These were produced when gun flints were made on the site. No features typically associated with flint mining were identified on imagery from a recent lidar survey.
