In the car park rifle cartridges and a beef bone were found, but the attic eaves had the most unusual items hidden, such as empty glass jars, empty tins of condensed milk and old cigarette packets were found. This might explain the large number of cigarette butts in the attic voids!

The favourite item found has to be the leather boot that was found under the floorboards of the Priest Room. It is believed that the left boot dates back to late 19th century and was for general use due to the absence of hobnails. If only we knew how a single boot got under the floorboards!
