The Romans never settled here, as far as is known, but they did pass through, and left a few coins and at least one ornamental brooch, found by metal-detecting.

If you find something in your garden, or on a walk just outside the village, and you think it might be really old, then do tell one of us about it. We are not expecting a hoard, but even a small coin can tell us something about the Romans’ movements.

Our meetings are very informal and new members are always welcome. Next meeting is Tuesday, Mar. 12th at 8pm in the History Room, Parsonage Lane. Contacts: Mark at or Audrey 850427 or
