Mound now demolished and site under high wheat crop. The farmer (16 years resident) cannot recall a feature here and has found nothing during normal ploughing in the field which is not named. The topographical situation plus the availability of an adjacent track suggest the mound may have carried a mill. (1) not available for comment. (2)
