Troutbeck Marching Camp 1

Marching or Temporary Camp

This marching camp is located just 100m north west of the fort. There is an entrance on each side protected by internal claviculae. The north west and south east entrances are centred, whilst the north east and south west were aligned differently to face the threat from that direction.

The defences of the camp measure 200m on the longest side by 185m.
