In Clark's list of moated mounds or burhs, for Yorkshire, is recorded 'Stang Howe, near Hinderwell.'

Stang Howe is a prominent natural mound which has no features or earthworks visible on the top or around the edges. It seems likely that it may have been used as a focus for ritual or funerary activity in the prehistoric period, since it is close to a number of burial monuments, but there is no evidence for this. Present knowledge does not indicate that the site should be considered as nationally important. (PastScape)

Not near medieval settlement. No real suggestion of medieval use of any type.
