Minor Settlement

The Roman settlement at Hardham lay to the south of the crossing of Stane Street over the River Arun, just to the east of the confluence of the River Rother.

There is a Roman villa at Bignor (SU9814) about three miles (5km) along Stane Street to the south-west, and another in the oppposite direction along Stane Street at Pulborough (TQ0620), with a Romano-British mausoleum nearby (TQ0618). There are substantial Roman buildings a few miles to the west along the Rother Valley at Duncton (SU9616) and to the immediate east of the settlement at Wiggonholt (TQ0617).
