Staunton In The Vale

Minor Settlement

This small settlement lies along the line of a suspected Roman road between the settlement at Brough on the Fosse Way in Nottinghamshire and the Romano-British temple and villa at Thistleton in Leicestershire; a northern extension of I.D. Margary’s Road#580.

… part of a complex of circular huts and associated gullies covering more than 1.6 ha [4 acres], was excavated [in 1970] 1.5 km [almost 1 mile] north of Staunton Hall. Traces of at least three huts were uncovered; occupation was principally in the period [A.D.] 250-400, but finds other than pottery were meagre.” (Britannia, 1971)
