Notes

A small rectangular enclosure representing a Roman-British farmstead situated circa 500 metres south of the Lime Kiln Kennels and 200 metres north west of Bury Hill. The site is no longer visible at ground level but is known fron aerial photographs to have a rectangular ditched enclosure measuring circa 100 metres from east to west and 70 metres from north to south. There is a single entrance on the east side and this is similar in layout to the small 'Ditchley' type villas, named after the site where they were first recognised. The interior is slightly smaller than that at Ditchley and is best described as a farm with its associated agricultural economy, rather than as a villa in the sense of a large country house. Surface finds of pottery from the area of the enclosure are Romano-British in date and many of these are stored in the Ashmolean museum. Scheduled.
