A smallish area near Gayton, Northamptonshire, called "Snakemore" in the 13C, is two to three metres higher than any surrounding land for at least five miles. Yet there are five or six dewponds, three of which are full or half-full of water throughout the year and these must be supplied by artesian pressure. In the search for a possible source one needs to check for past incidence of dewponds that could have been totally ploughed out. I am no geologist so I suggest this for others to look at.

There could be. But the easiest things to eliminate are those which
leave the best archaeological signature.
So, I thought it worth trying to find out whether there might be
anything that could tie in with Orions evidence of water in the ditches.
