Water Eaton (Stretton Mill) 5 Temporary Camp
Marching or Temporary Camps
This camp is known only from the south-west corner-angle, a short length of the south side and a longer length of the west side.
Within the whole Water Eaton complex none of the camps occupy positions as good as those utilised by the two forts and the vexillation fortress. The presumption must be that, with the possible exception of camp 3, each of them was dependent upon one of the permanent establishments.
