Roman remains found at controversial Windy Ridge site



ROMAN remains have been discovered at a site in Harborough which has been at the centre of a battle between developers and residents.

The Mail understands archeologists have found remains at the so-called Windy Ridge site off Glebe Road in Little Bowden.

County Hall, which is responsible for archeological finds, confirmed that Roman-era items have been unearthed but had no further details.

CgMs Consulting, planning, archaeology and historic buildings consultants, are dealing with the find.
Its associate director Myk Flitcroft was unavailable for comment today (Thursday, May 17).

Campaigners have been fighting against proposals for 141 homes at the site. The Windy Ridge Action Group wants to stop Redrow Homes building the homes. The developer has outline planning permission and has recently submitted more detailed plans for the site.
