'Fairies Hill', Whitwood.
The remains of an 11th century motte and bailey fortification, long reputed be just that, but written off by 20th century archaeologists as a mound of colliery spoil. However, excavations in 2007 confirmed its medieval origins and showed it to be constructed in the same way as the motte at Hastings Castle.
