Undated mound or barrow, near to the B1202, Wragby



Reference Name MLI40339

Name:
Undated mound or barrow, near to the B1202, Wragby

Summary:
Large, flattened mound recorded as Gallows Hill on the 1956 Ordnance Survey map. It is possibly a barrow.

Location:
WRAGBY, EAST LINDSEY, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
This is a large mound so flattened that it would be better called a platform. It does not seem to be the sort of spot for either a gallows or a mill, so perhaps it is a degraded barrow. The field is down to grass (1929).{1}
The location is called Gallows Hill on the second edition 1956 Ordnance Survey map. {3}
The feature appears to be under an area of woodland plantation with surrrounding cultivated fields, so the condition of the mound is not obvious from aerial photographs on google mapping. {5}
