Esgairperfedd Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

OS National Grid Reference: SN924799
Dimensions: 920 x 800 ft (280 x 244 m)
Area: c.17 acres (c.6.84 ha)
Description: Discovered in 1966, this moorland camp lies at an altitude of 1,525 ft (465 m). The complete circuit may be traced aside from the SW corner-angle, which lies submerged in bog. All four gateways are visible, each protected by internal claviculae, placed centrally in the E and W sides, and in the N and S off-set to the E on a ratio of 3:2; the camp therefore faced E. There is a similarly sized camp only 4½ miles to the E at St. Harmon.
