A mound was visible on aerial photographs of the 1940s and digital images derived from lidar data as an earthwork in Killerton Gardens. The mound is located on a saddle of land between a hill to the west and a ridge to the east. The date and function of the earthwork are unknown. A slight hollow visible in the top of the mound might support the interpretation that it had been excavated prior to the 1940s.
