Seatsides 2 Temporary Camp

Seatsides Camp 2

OS National Grid Reference: NY752664
Dimensions: 489 x 761 ft (149 x 232 m)
Area: 8½ acres (3.4 ha)
Description: This camp is situated only 80m NE of Camp-1, on gently sloping ground above the Brackies Burn which passes by to the N. Three gateways are recorded, 1 placed centrally in the E side and others in the N & S sides which are slightly offset to the E; with no corresponding break in the centre of the W defences, it is certain that this camp faced E. The interior of the camp has been damaged by natural erosion, ridge-and-furrow cultivation, variously dated field boundaries and modern drainage channels.
