Site of a Roman villa excavated between 1935-39. The area excavated clearly does not represent the full extent of the complex. The excavators suggested that they had uncovered the west wing of a courtyard building. The earliest phase appears to have been a timber aisled or corridor building, constructed prior to 130 AD. This appears to have been replaced and extended with flint footings. To the southwest was a baths block, including a hypocaust, the block apparently undegoing several phases of alteration, probably during the 2nd century. This baths block was built into the rooms added to the south west of the aisled building. A separate building was located to the north east. These were connected to the main building by a gravel path and featured another bath house, this one apparently belonging to the 4th century. Coins and pottery recovered from the site suggest occupation right through until at least the end of the 4th century. There is some evidence of pagan Saxon activity, possibly associated with evidence for iron working. Iron Age finds were also recovered. The villa site is scheduled.
