Norton Disney Roman villa site warrants higher level of statutory protection, says Historic England
Historic England has announced that the site of a Roman villa warrants a higher level of statutory protection.
The site at Norton Disney has been further safeguarded through the enlarging of the boundaries of the scheduled ancient monument. Scheduling offers the highest possible legal protection to sites considered to be of national importance.
It follows an application on behalf of the Norton Disney History and Archaeology Group to review the original boundaries set in 1934, and which had not been reviewed since then.
