Dean Milles (2) described Caton Pound as:
"A very considerable circle of stones ... on an eminence called Whitehill; chiefly of large stones, most of which rise about four feet above ye ground. This circle consists now of about 30 stones, but there are spaces where several more stood. Half the number are fallen, the rest are either erect or on their sides. There is evidently an entrance on ye north side". (4)
