Stowe's Pound

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork

Stowe's Pound (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by Mr Hamhead On the southern edge of Stowes Hill, just before it falls away into the quarry, stand three or four stones. This one, the largest, is about 5ft high. They could be part of the old wall that encircled the hill, or they could have been inside the wall. The creating of the quarry in the 1800s means we will never know.
