Notes

Roman villa discovered on Nuthills Farm in 1924 when building debris obstructed ploughing. The site was partially excavated 1924-6 when one room with remains of painted wall-plaster, rough sandstone flooring and the probable base of a fountain were uncovered. Fragments of flue and roofing tiles were also found. Other finds included pottery, animal bones, a brooch, and coins. During field investigation in 1968, a thin scatter of Romano-British potsherds was noted on the surface of the ploughed field.
