A piece of treasure off the beach
I found this wonderful piece of old pot on Saturday at Instow beach near Bideford. I was making the most of the rare super low Spring tide which gave me the opportunity to explore further out, in places normally still under water.
This sherd was just lying there waiting to be picked up. I don't know how old it is and pretty sure it is a storage jar. Comparing it to a photo I took of a storage jar from the 1600s in St Nicholas Priory in Exeter it bears an uncanny resemblance! If anyone can shed any light on this do let me know.
