Paved Roman ford crossing the line of the Roman road at Iden Green. The stream has long since cut its bed to a level several feet below the paving. Excavations between 1980-3 confirned that the area approaching the ford had been much damaged in Post Roman times. The original use of the paving has been tentatively suggested as a pedestrian causeway on the upstream side of the road-like part of the ford. The construction would have strengthened the crossing.
