Middridge Hoard

In 1974 during excavations for the foundation of the Bay Horse Pub extension in Middridge, a hoard of coins mainly dating from Edward 1 era was found. Known as "The Middridge Hoard", the significant hoard was mainly sold at an auction by Glendinning & Co in 1976, although some remain in the Dorman Long Museum in Middlesbrough, and the British Treasury Museum in London. The hoard of 3072 coins was estimated to be buried in 1311, and consisted of mainly English, but also Irish, Scottish and Continental coins.
