Summary Description of a Scheduled Monument
Date of Designation
Summary Description and Reason for Designation
The following provides a general description of the Scheduled Ancient Monument.
The monument consists of a large oval mound approximately 70m long by 30m wide. The mound comprises an artificial elevation of earth and river pebbles and is a maximum height of 5m at the NW end. Here the summit of the mound is relatively flat with steep sides. On the SE side of the summit the mound slopes gradually down. The mound is covered with trees and partly contained within a private garden.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of construction techniques. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A mound may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
