A Roman well has been found during construction to widen a road near Bingham, England.

A heritage group is now campaigning for the historic site to be dismantled stone by stone and re-erected in the town to prevent it being demolished by bulldozers.

Peter Allen, chairman of the Bingham Heritage Trails Association, said: “We’ve got a great deal of information about the Roman occupation in Bingham and absolutely nothing is visible, it’s all under ploughed fields.

“People can know it and read about it but they can’t see anything that’s Roman in origin – there’s nothing at all here. If we could get this one little thing which was Roman and put it on display it will give people a sense of reality about the existence of the Romans in Bingham.”
