Toad Knoll was found just north of the North Ride, less than a mile west of the bridge over the River Ashaba in Shadowdale.

Toad Knoll took its name from the bumper crop of frogs and toads that occurred in the spring months, living and breeding in the marshy ground at the base, caused by the upwelling of an intermittent natural spring.[1].
