Description: Prehistoric flint scatter.

A single worked prehistoric flint was recovered from Ballalough, West Baldwin, by CH Cowley, who described the findspot as 'the field opposite the lane to the house'. It is possible that this relates to OS Field 323, centred at SC34578103.

However, as the identification is not certain, and there are no further details concerning the circumstances of the discovery, the site grid reference relates to the farmstead for indicative purposes.

The antiquary Charles Harry Cowley was an avid collector of worked flint and coarse stone artefacts revealed by agricultural activity, mainly on farms located around Peel, and occasionally from further afield. He was active from 1900 until 1943. His entire collection of artefacts, together with a daybook cataloguing his discoveries, was later donated to Manx National Heritage.
