North Tawton Marching Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

The complete north side, the north-east corner-angle and most of the east side of this camp have been identified on aerial photographs. The south and west sides of the defences cannot be traced on the A.P.’s but the local topography limits the area available. The Nemetostatio fort and Roman road lie less than ½ mile to the south.
