Notes about this historic site

1 A large amount of stone along both banks 9m along the west bank and 7m along the east, roughly circular in shape made up of shattered burnt pebbles and large pieces of sandstone. Flint was observed in adjacent field to the south.
2 Birmingham City Archaeologist and expert on burnt mounds has seen the site and is not sure of the definition as a burnt mound. However the depth at 0.75m makes D Adams belive his original interpretation.
