Full Description

SK 37854395. Next to Park Brook, at the foot of the steep hillside, a mound circa 20m across was identified in 1979-80. At that time it was much overgrown. On the tithe award the fields to the north are called 'Mill Close' and 'part of Mill Close', suggesting that this may be the site of a water mill. (1-3)
