The discovery of an old clay pipe at a site in Horseshoe Bend has caused excitement among local people who believe it might date from the late 18th to early 19th centuries.
Julie Hvirf unearthed the pipe near the site of the art classes she runs in Carrington Street.

Among the items found there was a clay pipe Ms Cocco believes was identical to the one at Horseshoe Bend.
