Rugley Romano-British settlement (Denwick)

A roughly square enclosure, with rounded corners, is probably the remains of a Romano-British homestead. It was first described in the 19th century as a camp with a rampart and ditch, and a stone quern was reported to have been found nearby. The homestead has been ploughed in medieval times and only very slight earthworks remain on the west and south-east sides.
