Probably windmill stance. A turf covered mound situated in a level field under permanent pasture, contiguous with rig and furrow. It is flat topped, 2.4m high, bounded by a dry ditch, 0.6m deep, and measures circa 30.0m overall diameter. The ditch is mutilated by cattle tread on the West side, and a causeway crosses on the South side to form an inclined ramp to the summit. It is suggested that the site may be a motte or adulterine castle, apparently abandoned in the 13th century. Scheduled.
