Wyndcliff Roman Site


Wyndcliff Roman Site is believed to be the remains of a villa complex that likely dates back to the Romano-British period, which spanned from AD 43 to 410. Although the physical remains on the ground were recorded in the late nineteenth century, they are no longer visible today. The most compelling evidence for the site comes from a negative cropmark identified in aerial photographs taken in 1996, as well as subsequent geophysical surveys. These findings revealed the presence of a distinct stone-built building enclosed by a curvilinear ditch on the northern and western sides. The building itself is oriented in a north-south direction and has a rectangular shape in plan. The cropmark also shows indications of internal divisions within the building, including a corridor on the eastern side, as well as a range of rooms and associated external features
