Description POSI Area approximately 50m across east-west containing a scatter of ground stone, chipped stone and pottery. Ground stones include quern stones and rubbers, possible grinder and a large piece of probably unworked jasper. The pottery extends across the whole area, not necessarily associated with the scatter which is quite isolated with outlying pieces. A couple of pieces of small chipped stones. There are some white rocks- possibly chalky limestone- scattered around that don't look natural to the area. (SU3097, SU3100)
