Chedworth Roman Villa

Chedworth Roman Villa showcases the remnants of one of Britain's largest Romano-British villas. This 4th Century villa was built on the site of a natural spring overlooking the valley of the River Coln. Today, Chedworth Roman Villa is operated by the National Trust.

The highlight of any visit to Chedworth Roman Villa is viewing the well preserved mosaics like the one pictured below. The villa also had under floor central heating, bath houses, a latrine, and a water shrine.

Archeological work continues at the site and more mosaics are being uncovered. A Roman coin was discovered on the day of my visit!
