Details:

Skinner records a Roman pavement found about 1800 at West Cranmore and Sir R.C Hoare notes coins and a fragment of pavement. These are probably the same site. {1}

Skinners mss states that "Mr Knatchbull informed me a Roman pavement had been discovered about 20 years age (1800) near Mr Stroud's at West Cranmore". His accompanying sketch map annotates West Cranmore with "Roman Remains" but does not indicate a site. Nothing is known of the site locally and the tithe map has no significant field names. Marginal site. {2}
