Little Clyde Marching Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

An aerial photograph taken in June 1939 shows almost the entire outline of this camp, including the part of the W rampart which now lies in marshland. The N, E and S ramparts may still be traced on the ground, also two titulum outworks outside the gateways on the N side.
