Local Archeology

The surrounding area has a rich history dating from Mesolithic times (12,000 to 6,000 BC). Flints from this period have been found within the current parish boundary. An axe found in Two Stiles Field is Bronze Age (4,000 to 900 BC) and there is believed to be a Bronze Age burial mound on the parish boundary to the south of the village. The Romans were here and built a road skirting Epwell near the present village pub.
