Possible barrow site, Wilmore Hill, Scopwick


Oliver reported in 1846: "There was a conical hill in this parish at the intersection of the ancient road from Lincoln to Sleaford and a cross road called Bradley Lane. It bears the familiar name of Wilmore Hill, and is remembered by old people now living, as being of great diameter and more than 20 feet high. It was levelled at the enclosure, and found to be composed of clay and cineration remains, with abundant marks of cremation." Oliver is a doubtful authority. {1}{2}{3}
Wilmore Hill could not be identified with certainty but a resident of Kirkby Green believes the name once applied to an area centred at TF 066 583, now occupied by The Firs farm. {1}
