Site of a Roman temple, excavated in 1950 and possibly built in late 2nd century; finds of coins of the 3rd/4th century indicated continued occupation. The temple is visible as cropmarks and indicates a site of c.2.5ha enclosed by a wall 0.75m wide and several metres tall, the gateway is now under a modern housing estate. Inside the enclosure are cropmarks of two buildings; a Roman-British temple of the usual concentric square plan; the other building is a villa-like structure consisting of a suite of rooms with a corridor running along one side, possibly the priest's house or guest-house.
