Burgh by Sands Temporary Camp
Marching or Temporary Camps
The site of a Roman temporary camp is visible as cropmarks on air photographs. It lies between the course of Hadrian’s Wall and the Vallum. The camp lies just 130 feet (40m) to the south of Hadrian’s Wall Milecastle 71, only ¼ mile east of Burgh village, between the Wall to the north and the Kirkandrews-Burgh road to the south. The proximity of the Burgh by Sands Temporary Camp to the Aballava fort suggests that it may have housed the work-force which built the fort itself, though this is not proven.
