|Name||Linley Mound, More
Scheduled Monument: A site variously recorded as a Bronze Age burial mound, a medieval motte (fortified mound - an unlikely interpretation), and a post medieval ice house and summer house.
This is probably the site scheduled as Round barrow S of Linley Hall. Unfortunately, the scheduling maplet rings what appears to be a ring plantation. As a result there is a duplication with SA 1227. PAW comment May 1991.
Linley Mound, motte and tumulus (VCH 1908). An icehouse (Hogg and King 1970). Partly removed to make room for the erection of a summer house. Believed by the bailiff to be an ice-house (OS FI 1973).
Large barrow at Linley Hall scooped out to form an ice house. No record of contents (Wright 1856)
Evaluated for MPP in 1990-1, as one of less than 10 Ice Houses. (Shropshire HER)
