I've been in touch with Tim Reynolds (the DAC Archaeologist) who doesn't think it's a bell pit at all, but says that some of the locals are fixed on the idea - to the extent of ignoring other arguments and possibilities!. Apparently the pit is not bell shaped, it is not very deep, and on the evidence of the primary fill is probably C18/C19th rather than C14th. He thinks (subject to analysis) that the metal is lead

Possibly more to follow - but that probably ends the interest in this find for most of us on this list
