Abstract: Fieldwalking has yielded a considerable collection of stone artefacts from Chapel Pill Farm, Abbots Leigh, a site previously described by Lacaille (1954). The collection appears to be derived wholly from locally available material (predominantly chert) and despite differential preservation (some pieces are abraded while others are fresh) appears not to be transported other than by solifluction. Unlike other collections containing Lower Palaeolithic artefacts, a very wide range of tools is present including burins, awls, scrapers, choppers, handaxes and hammerstones.
