OK do you believe the OS who say that these features are tumuli or legend which says that these humps are lumps of soil thrown at travellers on the old Great North Road (just to the right of these humps but rather imposing nowadays)? It is said that these were thrown here from Weston Woods (TL2432 and TL2532). Dick Turpin would have ridden past these on Black Bess on his ride from York to London.
