 Record Name Burnt Mound on SW slopes of Penhill, in pasture below Slantgate Well, revisited
 Record Description This isolated burnt mound is one of five burnt mounds recognised to date at springs on the upper south- westerly facing slopes of Penhill. In contrast to the north- westerly facing slopes , which have been settled during prehistory, no settlements have yet been recognised, probably due to the poor pasture arising from acidic soils over sandstone.
 Dimensions 8m*6m*1m high approximately
 Additional Notes This record will be the first of a series of records arising from fieldwork designed to record burnt mound sites in their present day and contemporary prehistoric landscape contexts and in so doing, to update previous Gazetteers to include a large number of additional sites across the Ure, Swale and Tees/Greta Uplands.
