Marching or Temporary Camps
The rounded east angle and attached 230 ft. lengths of both the north-east and south-east sides of this camp were observed on aerial photographs taken in the early-1950’s, and the remaining ditches traced in adjacent fields by probing. The area thus defined measures 540 ft. NW-SE, by 440 ft. NE-SW. The embankment of the Bonnybridge Branch Railway line cuts the camp’s defences in half.
