Bignor Roman Villa

Pulborough, West Sussex

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

Bignor Roman Villa is close to the Roman road, Stane Street linking Chichester with London, about 9 miles north-east of Chichester (the Roman city of Noviomagus Regensium) and the nearby and much larger Fishbourne Roman Palace.

Bignor is said to have originally had 70 buildings over 4 acres. Today, the site museum preserves some of the best mosaics in England.

The rooms on display today are mostly located at the west end of the north wing, including a summer and winter (underfloor heated) dining room. The bathhouse is to the south-east. The Greek-key-patterned northern corridor extends for some 79ft (24m).

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
