On Cleadon Hill, west and south-west of the windmill, there are short, slightly curved, stretches of ditch with the upcast piled on one side. By oral tradition these were said to be army trenches, but the date of digging is unknown. Richard Harbottle said he had been present at their excavation, c. 1955, when he had been in a TA party being given a demonstration.
