This villa was suspected from surface finds of Roman pottery on the left? bank of Billing Brook, 3.5km east of Elton. Trial trenching in 1970 established the presence of a 40 feet (12 m) long rectangular building of stone, and established the main period of occupation during the late-3rd and 4th centuries.
