Farnley Temporary Camp 1

Marching or Temporary Camps

Three Roman marching camps have been recorded (JRS 1951, p.53; RCHME) lying on a steep scarp above the River Tyne between the river and Dere Street, about 1½ miles (c. 2 km) to the south-east of Corbridge.

Farnley Temporary Camp 1 is the smallest, has only its N, E & W sides traced, the S defences having been overlaid by Dere Street and the gardens of Farnley Grange. No gates are traceable in any part of the camp’s perimeter.
