MSO10215 - Two possible boundary markers on Mill Hill (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
Two small mounds lie towards the northern edge of Mill Hill. At SS 8231 4607 is a small circular mound, 3.2m in diameter and 0.6m high. The mound has a high stone content and is turf and heather covered. A second small mound lies some 200m to the south at SS 8236 4588. This mound is 2m in diameter, 0.5m high and is heather covered. The mound is rather peaty, with a low proportion of stone. The mounds could be field clearance mounds, but are more likely to be boundary markers, marking the boundary between the manors of Oar and Glenthorne and constructed in the latter part of the 19th Century.
