Discovered from the air on sloping ground on Kedslie Farm by CUCAP in 1976, much of the perimeter of this camp has been recorded, aside from the NE and the SW angles. There are four gateways, each protected by titula outworks, those in the SE and NW sides being centrally placed, while those in the longer NE and SW sides are off-set to the NW by a ratio of 2:1; the camp thus faced NW.
