  • Description

    "....No-one knows when The Green came into existence, or why. The probable explanation is that when the Romans abandoned the fort of Segedunum in AD 454 the river bank was no longer a safe place for the local population to live, so they moved up the side of the valley to the present location of The Green and founded a new village there. This must have been established, at the absolute latest, by the time that the Church of The Holy Cross was built c. AD 1150, in what is now the Burn Closes, to serve the needs of the inhabitants. It is probably much older...."
