Hob Hill. Hob is the local name for a mischievous spirit or devil which is also found attached to Bronze Age burial mounds. The implication is that the site was believed to have non-christian associations. In 1909 an Anglo-Saxon mixed cemetery was uncovered. The cemetery contained both inhumation and cremation graves. This is the most northerly example of an Anglo-Saxon mixed cemetery in England.
