|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Roman pottery find and possible hall site, Beighton|
In 1980, the base of a Roman jar was found when a fence post hole was excavated.
It is also possible that this area is the site of Beighton Hall. The hall is marked on Faden's map of 1797, but the accuracy of this has been questioned.

1980. Found in digging post hole for fence post, c.2' deep.
Base of Roman jar 100-300 AD.
Identified by A. Gregory (NCM) 10 June 1980.
S. Margeson (NCM) 12 June 1980.
This is also the site of Beighton Hall as marked and named on Faden's map 1797. It is shown by the little symbol indicating a gentleman's residence at the north end of a green. The position is difficult to plot exactly on the modern map; nothing is shown on the first edition 1" OS 1838. Faden is sometimes inaccurate with placing mansions and it is not impossible that this is a mistake for the Manor House, site 22025.

- POT (Roman - 43 AD to 409 AD)
