Type and Period (2)
One of two `mounds' (also see WLV 021) close to former carriage drive from Woolverstone Hall to Monkey Lodge, Freston. Appears to be round, circa 128 yards circumference. Planted with trees (5 beech, 1 sycamore, 1 sweet chestnut, 1 fallen unidentified trunk, 1 leaning bole chestnut plus two other stumps) that look about 150 years old, i.e. same date as drive (made in 1861). Under rough grass with seedling trees. Only circa 2 feet higher in centre than at edge. Possibly C19 landscape features but note nearby croft was called Newcroft or The Hills in 1505 when 9 acres in extent (S1)(S2).
