Treasure hoard location revealed

A COLLECTION of Viking treasure found in Furness last year has gone on public exhibition for the first time.

S51195B

Dating back to the 950s, the hoard features 92 silver coins, several ingots and a silver bracelet and is on display for one month only at the Dock Museum.

The Evening Mail, which has launched its "Treasure Quest" campaign to help raise the £30,500 needed to ensure the stash stays in Barrow permanently, can now reveal the secret location of the find.

The treasure was discovered in May last year by a metal detectorist on the edge of Stainton Quarry about four miles from Barrow.

The quarry is operated by Tarmac Limited, which has pledged £5000 to the fighting fund to keep the collection in local hands.

For the full story, including pictures of the treasure, see Thursday's edition of the Evening Mail.
