Notes about this historic site

1 The trench for a water pipeline was watched during its progress. In the field centred at SP092566 the trench turned up quantities of limestone and iron nails, and cut through two pits containing a rich deposit of C3-C4 pottery, suggesting that this field contained outlying Roman buildings.
