2014 Evaluation: The truncated remains of a building foundation wall was revealed in two of the trenches, interpreted as the Roman villa, thought to be in this location. Along with the building foundation walls a number of associated features were also found including a compacted rubble surface considered to be a floor, post holes and an Iron Age ditch (butt-end), which contained Late Iron Age and Belgic ware pottery. Among the other finds from the associated features were a small quantity of good quality painted wall plaster confirming the high status of the Roman building and a large quantity of roofing tile some of which confirmed the existence of a hypocaust system possibly from a bath house in the vicinity.
2015 Excavation: Awaiting details.
