St biary's Vicarage
SZ 4888 10/1


At the lower end of the vicarage garden is a Roman Villa which was
excavated in 1859, only partially uncovered and now very much overgrown,
though some of the pavements were roofed over. Of the basilican type,
excavations are said to have revealed a semi-circular bath and hypocaust.
