attached to it having been brought to his notice, he has conceded that in consideration of the sum of £100 the chapel and a sufficient quantity of land, about 500 yards in extent, shall be given up, provided the building be restored to its original use, and that services will be resumed and maintained. The Vicars of Wigginton and Tamworth are willing that services should be revived as far as practicable, and would rejoice if the little building is saved, and a resumption of its original purposes brought about.

In addition to the cost of the site and building, the expense of restoration will have to be met; but the amount of this will, of course, depend on the character of the work carried out. The whole reason and aim of this proposal would be negatived if any course were adopted not of the strictest conservative kind, for it is the preservation of every possible tittle of what remains of the old building that alone is sought for, and therefore nothing more than simple repair and reinstatement should be attempted. At the same time it must be brought up to a due fitness for church attendance, and this will involve considerable outlay. The chancel-roof will require reinstating, and the nave roof repairing generally. The walls will require making good where taken down, and repairing throughout, and the west wall externally repairing, being now of a single brick only in thickness. The internal plastering will require to be made good, and also the floor throughout. The reinstatement of the chancel-arch would be desirable, but not an actual necessity. Doors and windows will have to be provided. Altogether, the cost of purchase and restoration will amount to £350. For this sum an ancient Staffordshire relic of Norman and later times would be preserved, and the church's services revived in a consecrated fabric, desecrated for many years past.

The following member was duly elected :

J. Thos. Edmonds, Carlton Villa, Brixton Road, S.W. Mr. R. H. Forster read a paper on “The Tenth Iter of Antoninus and the Roman Stations in the North of England.” He accepted Mr. Watkin's identification of the route as far as Overborough, and traced it from that place to Watercrook, near Kendal, Ambleside, and Ravenglass. The western stations per lineam valli the writer attempted to identify as follows :—Petriana, Stanwix or Old Carlisle ; Aballaba, Papcastle ; Congavata, Malbray ; Axelodunum, Maryport ; Gabrosentis, Burrow Walls; Tunnocelum, Moresby; Glannibanta, Ravenglass : Alio, Watercrook; and Bremeteracum, Ribchester. Olenacum and Virosidum, he considered, must be sought for to the south of Ribchester. These last four stations, with the other garrisons under the Dux Britanniarum, he held to be parts of a ring of forts encircling the hill country of the northern counties, placing Danum at Doncaster, Morbium at Templeborough, Arbeia at Almondbury, Dictis at Ilkley, Concangium at Bainbridge in Wensleydale, Lavatrae at Bowes, Verterae at Brough, Braboniacum at Kirby Thore, Maglova at Whitley Castle, Magae at Old Town in Allendale, and Longovicum at Lanchester.
