Postulated by MacDonald, the Seabegs fortlet covers an area of only one-tenth of an acre (0.04ha). There are no coin finds and no inscriptions on stone have been recorded in the R.I.B.. The well-preserved length of Antonine ditch here is well worth a visit, although the site of the fortlet is not discernable.
