Undetermined



Documentary Evidence


The nature of this site is unclear, but on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan it appears to be an earthwork, possibly a spoil heap. Its location at the northern end of a wagonway (HER ref. 2610) suggests that it may have been the site of an extractive pit of some sort.
