Last year when I was working at Hanging Heaton some children brought in a clay tobacco pipe to show me. The bowl was decorated with swags and bore the initials
LD. When we worked on a small excavation in the school grounds several more pieces of similar clay tobacco pipe were recovered. They too had the same pattern of swags and the initials LD.
I have been unable to trace who LD might have been. Can anybody help me with this?
