Site Notes

St Hilary parish church.

Thomas/1994, 201, notes that a Roman milestone is preserved in the church.

Collingwood and Wright/1965, 696, state that this early fourth-century milestone was found in the fourteenth-century foundations of the church in 1854 presumably during the rebuilding of the church after the fire of 1853.

Thomas/1994, 317, suggests that the older part of the churchyard may have constituted a lann.

The church was burnt down in 1853 (Macalister/1945, 460; Okasha/1993, 236).
