Located some 330 yards (300m) SW of Hadrian's Wall milecastle-29, this small square camp has four visible gateways, set more-or-less centrally in each of its sides, with external titulum defences recorded outside the NW, SW & SE portals. The camp is aforested with much of its defences obliterated by the roots of trees. A (modern?) stone quarry lies outside the NE defences.
