Full Description

An undated, low, irregular grass covered mound cut by a wall. The mound measures nine metres by six mtres by half a metre (twenty-eight feet by twenty feet by half a foot). (1) This low earthen mound was trenched several years ago [c.1980] by members of the Hunter Archaeological Society without conclusive result. It was originally thought to be a barrow but nothing was found to support this and a layer of burnt lime found argues strongly against this. It may be the result of far more recent agricultural activity. (2).
