Depart Exeter 09:00, Return 17:00
Leaving Exeter Bus Station by coach at 09:00, travelling to Lydney Park Roman Temple.
Pick up at Cullompton Services if requested
Coach cost: based on 20 people travelling, the cost is expected to be approx £25 per person
Entry to the Park is £5.00 per person.
Bring a packed lunch. There is a tea room at Lydney Park but it can sometimes be very busy.
A visit to the ruins will be led by Denise Allen, allowing time after to explore the gardens and have lunch.
The plan is to leave Lydney at 14:00 and travel to Kings Weston Roman Villa, via Blaise Castle to pick up keys. The villa was discovered in 1947 when a new housing estate was being built. There are some fine mosaics under cover in a site hut.
