Notes about this historic site

1 An area of stone paving extending roughly ESE to WNW was located by dowsing to the S of Butlers Marston. A small excavation in the garden to the S of the church produced evidence for a layer of rough stone cobbling perhaps 0.5m below the ground level. On top of the stones were the disarticulated bones of a (?) horse. The dowsers believed that the stone paving represented a Roman road.
2 It looks rather irregular and uneven and may be foundations, building rubble, or even natural.
