In 1976 a scatter of prehistoric pot boilers was identified at this location. This scatter was spread amongst a patch of burnt earth, and a flint scraper and a blade were found in association with the pot boilers. A visit to the site in 1992 found the pot boilers to be densely spread in a well-defined area on the edge of a now dry valley.
