Sunny Rigg 3 Temporary Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

This very small camp, unlike its larger neighbours, lies some 80m N of the Stanegate, and although unaffected by the plough, has part of its N circuit damaged by modern field drains. Gateways are apparent in the centre of the E & S sides, both protected by external tituli.
