Mill Mound at 'The Bank'

Description of this historic site

The Bank is the probable site of a Medieval windmill. Its location, small size and flat top suggest that it was a windmill mound. It is on the north west edge of the village of Butlers Marston.

Notes about this historic site

1 The Bank, Butlers Marston, is circular and rises somewhat abruptly from the surrounding ground. It is suggested that this is an early windmill mound. It does not give the impression of being a tumulus.
3 This mound has a flat top and there are no traces of a ditch. It has been mutilated by the insertion of a water tank. Probably a windmill mound.
4 Its topographical location and its small size (outer diameter 23m) and flat top (11.7m diam) strongly suggest it to be a mill mound.
5 Photographed in 1982.
