Only the north-east and north-west sides of this camp are recorded, the south-east and south-west sides being restricted by the escarpment of the Galley Gill and the River Petteril respectively. There are simple gateways in both visible defences. Several (Roman?) post-holes and an 11th century storage pit for grain were found during excavations within the interior. (JRS 1951 p.54; RCHME.)
