(1 ha)
The defences of this camp delineate a parallelogram. There are gateways placed in the centre of the W and E sides, with an external titulum outside the E, but large gaps in the N & S defences cannot be proven to be gates. This camp lies almost entirely within the defences of Camp-2, and was possibly built first.

9¾ acres
(3.9 ha)
This almost rectangular camp has gateways placed centrally in its E & W sides and others in the N & S sides off-set towards the E; the camp therefore faced E. A trapezoidal annexe of 3 acres (1.2 ha) was attached to the W end of the N defences of this camp.

The camps lie in fields to the east of the Hadrian's Wall Path as it follows the Sandy Lane (Track) between the Wall and the Stanegate; the field boundary with the trigonometric point at 32 metres elevation (NY 4580 6034) lies roughly 20 metres beyond the eastern defenses of the largest camp.
