Though there are surprisingly few traditions concerning the barrows, yet the curiosity they aroused in the minds of dwellers in the neighbourhood is shown by the fact that so many of them have names. That it was "a very mysterious mound" was all that I could glean from a shepherd concerning a barrow at Croxton, but he was able to inform me that it was called "Mickle Hill" (a name hitherto unrecorded)...
From 'Norfolk and Suffolk' by W G Clarke (1921).
