Visit to Chedworth Roman villa

Date: 
Saturday, October 8, 2016 - 10:45 to 16:00

This is a repeat of the visit on 1st October arranged to satify demand for places. The programme for both trips is the same. A few spaces are currently available for both dates.

In 2010, a major excavation was started by the National Trust because “the villa was poorly understood, past site records had been lost and previously excavated portions had been reburied”. The dig will continue this summer. Roger Box, a local archaeologist and Chedworth volunteer, will walk us through the landscape to the remains of an unexcavated Roman Temple to better understand the site as a whole. Roger will also give us a guided tour of the Villa  and the excavations. The proposed programme is as follows:

10.45am            Meet in cafe at Chedworth Roman Villa
11am- 1pm-ish    Temple tour/walk
                Lunch
2.45/3.00pm        Villa tour
4.00pm             Tea/coffee in cafe

Cost:             £4.00 - £6.00 depending on numbers plus your National Trust card. (Non NT members will also pay a £10.00 admission fee.) 
Max no:            25 people  

Booking is essential so please email Irene Goring at irene@greenhayes.plus.com(link sends e-mail) if you would like to come so that  your name can be added to the list.
