This suspected Roman encampment lies on a high platform astride the main Roman road across Stainmoor in North Yorkshire (now the A66T), about 3¾ miles (c.6 km) from the Scotch Corner junction. The square enclosure with rounded angles measures about 350 ft. by 310 ft. (c.107 x 94 m), thus covering an area of around 2½ acres (c.1 ha). The northern corner-angle and lengths of the adjacent sides are still visible on the ground as raised earthworks. The identification of this site as Roman remains uncertain. (JRS 1951 p.53)
