Cound Hall Marching Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

Description: Only the eastern corner-angle, a short length of the north-east side and a longer piece of the south-eastern defences of this camp are known. The only gap in the south-east rampart occurs at a point where the underlying geology is suspect, so this cannot be positively identified as a gateway. Topography suggests that the north-west side would not have been much over 180m distant from the south-eastern defences, but there are no certain delimiters for the missing south-west side.
