A suicide burial site (S1).
Must indicate that this was once a crossroads. A small bush still grows out of the ?Peddars Way (NHER 1289) bank below an oak tree.
E. Rose (NAU), 22 June 1978.
The bush is drawn on a map of 1794 at Merton Hall, but seems to be positioned farther into the field than on Ordnance Survey map.
E. Rose (NAU), 30 April 1982.
Bush has gone. Tree remains.
