Notes about this historic site

1 Finds made in about 1982 with a metal detector. Finds were in silt dredged from the River Avon and include nineteen Roman coins of 1st to 4th century date. These coins remain in the possession of the finder. Also four bronze objects: One ‘Polden Hill’ type brooch (late 1st , early 2nd century); one ‘dolphin type’ brooch (late 1st/early 2nd century), and two bronze objects of uncertain date.
2 These finds are exactly at the spot of the probable Roman ford at Tiddington.
