OS National Grid Reference: NT742334
Dimensions: c.1,476 x 1,200 ft (c.450 x 365 m)
Area: c.40 acres (c.16.4 ha)
Description: This camp was discovered on aerial photographs in 1982 and a section cut across the SW defences later that year found the ditch to be 12¼ ft. wide by about 3½ ft. deep (3.75 x c.1 m). It is thought that this camp was constructed during a reconnaissance in force into the territories of the Votadini and is contemporary with the camp on the opposite (west) side of Dere Street at Milrighall.
