MONUMENT NO. 361745

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of a large Roman villa discovered in 1736 when a mosaic was uncovered by ploughing, another mosaic was uncovered in 1798. The coin evidence suggests a 4th century AD date. Air photographs taken in the drought of 1976 show the greater part of the villa in considerable detail as parchmarks. It appears to have been unusually large, over 200m. long and some 60m. wide, and consisted of buildings arranged round two courtyards with other possible buildings to the north. A geophysical survey was carried out in 1992.
