Roman Barn BagintonBuilt on the site of a Roman stronghold, this barn has been faithfully reconstructed to the exact specifications and methodology as the original. In the 70s, a team of Army engineers, using the same building methods as the Romans built this. To date it has been visited by hundreds of school parties using this as the basis for projects. Notice that the barn is built on stilts, that was to ensure the stored corn was free from damp and rats. An important building this would be in a fortification. An army on the move must be fed. Nice touch putting a Roman litter bin outside.

Three Horseshoes Bubbenhall
This pub has been in Bubbenhall for the last 250 years and offers accommodation as well as decent food. It has been modernised recently.
There is a natural spring outlet opposite the Three Horseshoes and up until 1960 was the main source of water for the village. Commonly known as the 'spout', after the laying of mains water into the village it was no longer needed. In the 70s local quarrying altered the water supply and the spring dried up. It was flowing today, possibly because of the heavy winter rainfall.
A nice 20 miles today
