this camp is almost rectangular and all but its south-eastern corner has been plotted. There are apparently four gateways, placed centrally to north and south and offset to the north on the east & west sides, the camp therefore faced north. An irregular triple-ditched enclosure of prehistoric date, now ploughed flat, lies outside the south-west corner of the camp, whose defences impinge upon this earlier earthwork.
