Notes

The site of a Roman villa, first uncovered in 1818 when five "apartments" were uncovered. Finds included coloured stucco, broken glass, tesserae (including a tessellated pavement) and coins. Nearby, the remains of a hypocaust were found, along with further foundations and water pipes. The site was re-examined in 1929 by officers and cadet from the RAF College at Cranwell. The excavated area appears to represent the bath wing of a corridor villa. The site is scheduled as an ancient monument.
