Cottage in wood still occupied, transmitter erected nearby. Detailed survey not made owing to shooting; northeast end not visited. No sign of a mound in remainder of wood. Location on hill top could account for name.

Mound beside track to cottage claimed is, in fact, an illusion caused by cutting down of track in front, and dumping of material from mast site behind. Large 19th century gravel pits in wood.
