In 2019-20, OA East excavated a previously unknown late Roman industrial site, part of a Roman villa estate. A stone building associated with an earlier phase of the villa was found, which seems likely to have been a temple-mausoleum. Constructed of local limestone, the building consisted of a well-built single celled square building (cella) set within a rectangular courtyard, bounded by stone walls that formed a square precinct. This follows the plan of Romano-Celtic temples apart from its orientation facing west, not east. The monument is likely to have been a mausoleum commemorating the memory of its financier, rather than a place of worship for the local population. It probably dates to the late 2nd to 3rd century: radiocarbon dates are awaited. At some point in the later 3rd to early 4th century, the temple-mausoleum had become dilapidated and was repurposed as a tilery in an area of industrial activity. Two kilns were constructed, the larger of which utilised the shell of the former cella.
