Full Description

Centred at SS 8210 3090 on the eastern end of Black Ball are at least two earthen mounds. They are well defined, sub circular in shape and are 4.8 metres in diameter and 0.6 metres high. They are composed largely of earth and overlie a system of cultivation ridging, which although undated is probably late medieval or post medieval in origin (MDE8252). The mounds are therefore probably of post-medieval date, although their function is unclear. [1]
