LAMEL HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

A natural rise on which a mound was built in 1644 for use as a gun platform for the siege of York, and subsequently converted to other uses. The mound was formerly the site of a cemetery, excavated in the 19th century, and thought to be Anglian. Further excavations in 1983 at Belle Vue House located 38 inhumations, most aligned East-West and thought to be Anglian. The mound was used as a Windmill mound until c.1840, and was evidently used as a garden prospect mound, presumably in the later 19th century. It now lies within the gardens of The Retreat.
