Eston Nab



"Reference is made in Ord to a 'hillock in Court Green' which was destroyed by workmen. In it were found, below a paved surface, 5 urns of 'flowerpot shape' arranged in a circle. The present location of the finds in unknown, as is the site of the location itself. Ord further reports, though he did not see it himself, the existance of a 'number of upright stones set in a circle' near the mound.
The mound in question does not appear to be Court Green Howe as it is recorded as having been destroyed. Ord refers on several occassions to the whole of the Eston Hills as 'Court Green', so the alleged barow and stone circle may be anywhere on those hills.
