There are a number of handwritten notes on this sheet:
The Mote - adopted in accordance with usage. see quotation from [?
The only other memorial of Roman antiquity( the first being that of the Roman Road) is this Tumulus(underlined) near Garrion Bridge, on approaching Garrion Bridge the attention will be assisted by a mound on the edge of the public road marked by a solitary oak tree. When this road was being constructed several years ago, there were considerable quantities of stones around the base of this tumulus(underlined) which had apparently been collected at different periods from the surface of the neighbouring fields.
