OS Name Book says of this site that it is ‘a large knowe ... Its surface is rough pasture, and on its summit stands a Trig. Pole called “Old Lord”’ (17, 15). As there is no earlier indication of this name, it is possible that the Trig. Pole itself gave rise to the name, resembling a figure from a distance. What was not apparent to the nineteenth-century surveyors, as its traces are only visible from the air, is that the summit of this hill is occupied by an Iron Age ring fort with four concentric lines of enclosure (NMRS NO30NE 44).[44]
