Notes about this historic site

1 An artificial mound some 30m in diameter and 2m high is situated here.
2 The mound is said to be the remains of anthills. A slit trench dug here during WWII found nothing to suggest this.
3 The site is marked on a map of 1775 and on the 1838 tithe award map 4. The adjacent field is called Mill Hill on the Tithe award and it is possible that this refers to the mound nearby.
