    In July 1992, ten bottles containing explosives were unearthed on a farm. The explosives were found to be a chlorate/dinitro-toluene mixture similar to a type used in World War 1. The bottles were found to date from circa 1920. The explosive cache was probably in the ditch for more than 70 years.
