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
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
