An incomplete Post Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. Originally forming part of a four-lobed seal, the surviving fragment consists of just two discs joined together: approximately 70 per cent of disc 3 and 90 per cent of disc 4. The breaks are old and probably caused by the plough. Disc 4 appears to have a tab extending a few millimetres from the edge opposite disc 3. At the other extremity, on disc 3, a remnant of the connecting strip that joined it to disc 2 survives and is slightly crumpled. Disc 3 is stamped with a design which, by comparison with similar seals, might be a thist…
