A 3rd/4th century courtyard villa of which parts of the east and south ranges are shown on Plan I. In the east range are mosaic floors and a small bath house (Plan II) (5).

Other notable finds are roof tiles and painted wall plaster (2); coins extend from Domitian (81-96) to Constantine I (306-37) (4). Under the villa three sides of a 1st/2nd century ditched and stockaded rectangular enclosure were found with the east side below the bath house; together with traces of a timber gateway and timber buildings (4). Iron Age ditches and circular huts underlay the site (3 & 6). (2-9)
