Type and Period (3)
Roughly circular flat-topped mound located in coniferous plantation. Approximately 20m diameter and 1.5m high. Some thinning had been carried out prior to 1995. Mound in reasonable condition - top not pitted (S1).
It is also possible this is a pillow-mound for breeding rabbits and fits the flat topped form described by Williamson & Loveday, 1988 (R1).
In area of hummocks - probably natural. Location as plotted needs checking - possibly inaccurate (S2).
