Dornock Temporary Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

Dornock Camp was discovered on aerial photographs in 1962, the entire perimeter of this camp was either established or could be conjectured by 1968, but most of the north-west side has been lost to erosion by the river Earn. A trench across the south-west side in 1962 revealed a ditch cut into hard gravel, 8½ ft. wide by 2½ ft. deep.
