(NS 3517 6611) Mote Hill (NR) (Site of)

(Feature is shown by a ring of slopes about 80ft in diameter)

OS 6" map (1857)

Site of Mound (NR)

OS 6" map (1911)

Very little of this feature now remains, the ground having been frequently ploughed. The position was pointed out by the present farmer who had levelled the ground for cultivation.

Name Book 1856

The site is marked by a long, low swelling which extends into the adjoining field to the NW, and has every appearance of being natural. The present tenant, Mr W Crawford, has been on the farm since 1927 and has found nothing.

Visited by OS (JD) 27 July 1955

No trace of this mound remains. The surface of the field is entirely natural with much loose stone scattered about.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 19 May 1964
