Wall Bulge in Shirley

I came across a large rock pile built up against a wall:It was part of an extended uneven heap of rocks forming a kind of ridge running down along the side of a pool of standing water, a little pond, to the right in the photo above. Here is a picture of the ridge, pond behind us. In this picture the wall and the bulge are to the left:I expect this is agricultural but wonder why the rocks are on the high place, rather than a lower one. Note the uneven sub-structures.

It looks to me like the stone wall was built over an existing pile. I have seen this near the Miner Farm.

Well, I'd like to believe that. The rest of the "ridge" would then be significant.
