This large rectangular camp has only 2 readily identifiable gates, one set in the centre of the E side protected by an external titulum, and another in the S side offset to the E and protected by an internal clavicula. Many other gaps are visible in the perimeter but none can be readily identified as gateways. A cairn occupies the exact centre of the camp, and several (medieval?) bell-pits are scattered about both within and outside the defences.
