Chedworth Roman Villa

Hey everyone! 

Hope you’re all having a great weekend. I took one last opportunity to go exploring, this time with my lovely Mum and Dad. We all work ridiculous hours, like many families, so we always try and make our time count. 

Followers of my blog will know how much we love our National Trust membership; this time we visited Chedworth Roman Villa. 

What blew me away was the fact that it was literally tucked away in the middle of nowhere. How did the Romans find it? Why that spot? So many unanswered questions. 

The biggest fascination I had was with the  fact that there’s still more to be discovered. Inside the museum, which was added in the Victorian period, parts of mosaic and stone were being still being found last year. It’s always quite inspiring to know there’s secrets hidden beneath the earth. 

The mosaic they have found so far are so beautiful. It’s incredible what has been preserved so far. 

Places like this require imagination. There are only parts left. But, I find that quite magical really. It’s giving you an active piece of history that you can interpret yourself. My favourite part: the bathhouse rooms and the outdoor water shrine. 

I enjoyed getting my geek on in terms of history this weekend. I hoped you enjoyed my photos! If you’d like more information, check out The National Trust Website

Big love to you all xxx

  1. This looks like a great place to visit. I agree with you that the places that require some imagination are often the best ones. We have a lot of Early American “ruins” in random places where I live in the northeast U.S. and I like stopping to take a look and think about the people who lived in them.


  2. Hi ya Charlie, I have so much to catch up on with you. I hope you’re well and life is good with you. I grew up near the Roman palace at Fishbourne, it’s amazing to see things the same but different at this palace and you know there would have been a good reason for them to have it where they did! Big love to you and keep smiling 😃
