Notes about this historic site

1 The old Warwick-Alcester road enters the parish on the East at Gospel Oak. Here stood the tumulus from which Pathlow Hundred took its name.
2 No traces of this mound now survive.
5 Discussion of a number of Hundred Mounds and other meeting place mounds in England indicates that they may have been constructed in the post Roman period, rather than utilising BA burial monuments.
6 If it was an early Medieval/Medieval Hundred mound then this could have used the site of a round barrow (PRN 1579).
