Notes about this historic site

1 In Mows Hills Coppice is a bank c.80 yards long and 40 wide with two ditches and lying in a direction NNW. Bears a resemblence to Hobditch Causeway.
2 Investigation in the area has suggested the earthworks are connected with game bird rearing. Two ponds were located and may be associated with quarry activity.
3 A site visit showed the coppice to be very overgrown, but the bank was still traced for a short distance. The two ditches were slightly wet under foot. It is not possible to make a positive association between this site and Hobditch Causeway.
