Monument Number 57778

Hob Uid: 57778
Location :
Doncaster
Blaxton
Grid Ref : SE6693000660
Summary : "Pond O' the Hill" - A possible Castle mound. Field investigation in 1961 noted that part of the enclosure and a moat survived, but there was no evidence of a Motte. Field investigation in 1964 indicated that the monument had been obliterated.Remains of a probable medieval moated site and a bank are visible as earthworks on air photographs.
More information : [SE 66930065] Pond o' the Hill [T.I.] Castle Mound [G.T.]. (1)

"Blaxton, Pond o' th' Hill. There is an Inclosure evidently very ancient, at the corner of which we find a little mound surrounded with a ditch". (2)

Pond o' the Hill. It is a mound surrounded by a moat, and was evidently a castle mound. (3)

There are now only fragmentary remains of this feature sited at SE66930066. The corner of the enclosure bank and a part of the outer bank of the moat (approx. 1.0m. high) survive, but the central mound has been completely obliterated.
A 25" survey has been made. (4)

The remains of this feature are too fragmentary to determine its purpose or period of construction. (5)

Condition unchanged. (6)

No longer exists - deleted from field document. (7)

Remains of a probable medieval moated site and a bank are visible as earthworks on air photographs, centred at SE 6693 0067.
Only part of the north-west corner of the enclosure bank and outer bank of the moat are visible.
To the north-east a linear bank runs on a north-east south-west alignment for approximately 139m. Possibly this feature is associated with the moated site.
On the 1978 Ordnance Survey vertical photography the monument appears only as soilmarks.
