Gerrard, S., 1990-2002, Monument Protection Programme. Archaeological Item Dataset., MPP 140618 (Report - Survey). SDV277946.

Site visited on 1st April 1995. Pillow mound at SX56516490 within an historic field system. Survives as a 25 metre by 6 metres by 1 metre high flat topped, sub-rectangular mound of soil and stone surrounded by a 1.8 metre wide and 0.2 metre deep ditch. A 15 metre long by 0.9 metre wide and 0.2 metre deep gully leads west from the mound's ditch to another ditch leading along behind a post-medieval field boundary. This gully probably represents an animal run in which rabbits and vermin could have been trapped.
