Monument Number 341386

Hob Uid: 341386
Location :
South Northamptonshire
Grid Ref : SP6430047900
Summary : A low flat-topped mound surrounded by a water-filled ditch occupies the summit of a hill South-West of the village. Possibly a windmill mound, it may have bween used as a rabbit warren, which the adjacent field names imply. Extant 1740.
More information : A mound (SP 643479), lies on the summit of a hill south west of the village, on Boulder Clay at 137m above OD. It consists of a low, flat-topped mound 15m in diameter and 0.25m high, completely surrounded
by a water-filled ditch up to 10m wide. It certainly existed in
its present form in 1740 when it was depicted as tree-covered. At
that time it lay between two fields called West and Middle Conigree.
Its date and purpose are not known but it may have originated as
the base of a windmill or have been connected with a rabbit
warren as the field name suggests. (1)
