GRIMSHOE

DESCRIPTION + /

Grimshoe is a mound constructed from mining debris and spoil to the east of the Grime's Graves mining complex. The earliest reference to the mound occurs in Domesday Book, and the mound itself was apparently the meeting place of the Hundred of Grimshoe. The name of the site is Anglo-Saxon in origin, meaning Grim's, or Woden's, burial mound.
