Notes about this historic site

1 There is an undoubted sepulchral mound, once opened by Mr Bloxam. It has no encircling ditch.
2 The labourers employed missed the deposit and a few fragments only of ancient pottery were found. 1968: This is almost certainly a large, badly-mutilated windmill mound. There is a ramped tail to the E and much disturbed evidence of a ditch elsewhere. The top of the mound has three depressions, probably ‘beds’ for a post mill or – less likely – the excavations of Bloxam.
