From John 4/02/2020:

Tuesday, 4th August 2020, visit to Uriconium, the 4th largest and best explored Roman City in the UK. Our guide for the day will be Dr Roger White, the expert on the site. I expect the excursion to be by coach and to provide an optional buffet lunch at the nearby Wroxeter Hotel. Since our previous visit 10 years ago much new information has emerged.
