Description of this historic site

The site of a possible windmill mound, a mound on which a windmill stood. It is probably of Medieval or Post Medieval date. It lies to the north of Cryfield Village.

Notes about this historic site

1 This field contains a mound at its northern end and is entitled “Mill Hill Field” on the 1766 Stoneleigh estate map. It is therefore likely to have been the site of a windmill. However, the mound may be of natural origin and may have seen previous use (see eg WA 8360). As part of the assessment of Warwick University’s archaeology (WA 8344), a geophysical survey was made of part of the mound and the immediate vicinity.
