Notes

Masonry walling found in a gas pipe trench in 1957 has been interpreted as being Roman, although in reality there is no dating evidence. Photographs held at Devizes Museum show two sections each of two courses of squared blocks at right angles to the trench. Archaeological investigation was not possible as the discovery was not reported to the museum until 1960. The attribution to the Roman period seems to rest solely on the fact that Roman finds have been discovered elsewhere in Limpley Stoke. The site has been listed by Scott as a possible villa.
