Stroud Villa

Temple Or Shrine and Villa

Excavations in 1907-8 uncovered a Roman villa with Baths and an aisled farmhouse with wings. A Roman lead coffin was found nearby. The villa complex included a detached octagonal building about 27½ ft. in diameter which may have been a shrine attached to the villa or possibly a garden pavilion. There is a similar situation at the Walton-on-Hill villa in Surrey.
