Two modern looking ditched mounds were identified in c. 1960. One was central to the field with the Elvaston Home Farm in full view - its diameter was 55 feet. The other was 100 yards away near the footpath from Alvaston to Elvaston which runs between them. (1)
Only one mound was found, at SK 40163360. This feature is situated in a flood plain, it is 0.8 m. high with a flat top and no ditch, adjacent to a wide modern drainage channel and probably represents spoil from this drain or the erection of the adjacent pylon. (2)
