Notes about this historic site

1 Two pools on Walnut Hill are usually shown as fishponds, but these look more like flooded stone pits.
2 Walnut Hill is around this Grid Ref, watering and pits are given as land use for one of the adjoining fields.
3 The pools are situated on steeply sloping ground. There is a connecting ditch between them and the brook runs down the hill from the lower one. The soil is clayey and the pools are possibly clay pits.
