About The Event

Visit to the Excavation of a Romano-British Farmhouse in Westbury-sub-Mendip

There were several small farmsteads in the parish during the Roman period, probably owned by local people who had adopted the Roman way of life. This trip is an opportunity to see the remains of a substantial farmhouse that probably supplied food to the garrison and miners at Charterhouse, and traded at the local markets.

  • Parking at the farm is now      more restricted than in previous years, so I suggest visitors park in      Station Road, BA5 1EY and walk along the Strawberry Line Path - the      attachment gives details.
  • If anyone would like a      longer walk, park near Easton Village Hall and take the Strawberry Line      Path from there.
  • Meet at 10.30 at the      Double Gates
  • Car sharing is      advisable where possible
  • The fields are mainly      level, but boots or strong shoes are essential, particularly if      there's been recent rain.
  • Unfortunately, the 126 bus      is not a practical option because of the timetable.
