Notes

A mound in Morden Park. Field investigations in 1965 found it tree covered, approximately 36 metres in diameter and 3.4 metres in height. It had a flat top 10 metres in diameter and was surrounded by a ditch 4 metres wide by 0.4 metres deep. A terraceway, 2 metres wide, led in a spiral around the mound from the lower east side to the upper west side. The top of the mound was scattered with brick and tile. The tithe map of 1837 shows the area as a park with this feature as a circular plantation named Pagoda Plantation, with a centrally placed rectangular building. Its general appearance and evidence suggests a belvedere mount, although an adaption from an earlier feature cannot be entirely discounted. It had been scheduled as a Bronze Age round barrow.
