Lugbury long barrow
Shrine of Apollo Cunomaglus
South-west of Brotton Hill wood, where the Fosse Way crosses the Broadmead Brook, in the north-west of the parish, remains of a Romano-British settlement of about 30 buildings have been found. This was excavated between 1956 and 1971; it is now field and woodland again. It was interpreted as a religious site including an octagonal shrine some 10 metres in diameter. Apollo Cunomaglus may have been its overall patron; dedications to other deities, probably including Diana, Mercury, and Mars with his Gaulish consort Rosmerta, were also found.
