Notes: Post-medieval. NMR states "The mound depicted on the OS 1:10000 scale mapping (1) and described by Grinsell (2) is largely obscured by gorse. It is not of prehistoric origin as it sits upon a number of narrow cultivation ridges associated with the post medieval field system in this area. It is more likely to be a relatively recent stone clearance heap. A similar feature (440692) lies 140m to the east."
