Huyton metal detector finds rare Bronze Age axe head in St Helens
Fifty-two-year-old historian Steve Hickling, from Huyton, was hunting for treasure in the grounds of Fir Tree Farm Shop and Cafe, in St Helens, earlier this year when he uncovered the axe head.
He told the ECHO: "It's as rare as hen's teeth.
"It's something that you don't find every day and I've only been in the hobby for 12 months."
