Loomer Road Marching Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

This camp lies about 400 yards (c.366m) south of the fort at Mount Pleasant in Chesterton. This camp is almost square, its southern corner-angle and short lengths of its south-east and north-east sides have been confirmed by excavation in the grounds of the Loomer Road Roman Catholic church. No gateways have been identified, but is is possible that the camp faced towards the north-west.
