Notes about this historic site

1 On the lower slopes of Baden (Bardon) Hill, from where it rises gently opposite the mouth of the river Stour, in 1786 a labourer in digging drains discovered a broken vessel and three brass Roman coins. One had on the obverse side a head and on the reverse the ‘image of Moneta with her balance’. The labourer did not search for more and buried the vessel in the place at which he found it.
2 The coins are described as copper.
3 Found at around SP1753.
