Excavated in 1909, finds included Bronze and Iron Age pottery, Roman pottery plus coins, brooches, iron implements, some bone objects, spindle whorls and whetstones. A, now lost, glass bead may have been Iron Age in date.

Three flints recovered, now in Buxton Museum, have been identified as being of Upper Palaeolithic date.
