Mrs Reed (owner) said she and husband had read all literature on subject and were on look out for building. Farm is all pasture except garden, but 2 fields recently ploughed for resowing and more will be so shortly, any traces will be notified. She conducted us to the area near the paved ford as the most probable area. Possible that paving was taken for Roman and became by reputation pavement then tesellated pavement (2)
