The National Trust submitted a large assemblage of unwashed and unsorted finds to Oxford Archaeology North for analysis, in June 2016, mainly ceramic and glass vessels. These had been recovered in the course of recent footpath improvement works at Claife Station, Cumbria (SD 3884 9547). They were found to be of relatively recent date, most probably deposited in the middle of the twentieth century, and formed an assemblage of largely utilitarian wares, and modest tablewares. It is possible that these may have been associated with the Station Cottage Tea Gardens, situated below the station, and certainly operational in the 1920s, or the nearby Ferry House Hotel.
