A collection of 29 fragments of clay pipe, including three bowls. Also discovered with the pipe fragments was a possible pipe piercing rod, used in the manufacture of clay pipes. The rod is copper-alloy and consists of a thin rod, 1.5 mm in diameter which has a spherical knob at one end, bent at a right angle. The rod had been badly bent out of shape. These artefacts are post-medieval in date.
