Water Eaton Camp 2, Staffordshire
SJ903111 c.575 x 650+ ft
(c.175 x 200+ m)
8 acres
(c.3.3 ha)
Only the north corner-angle and short lengths of the north-west and north-east sides of this sub-rectangular camp have been established, respectively 625 and 545 feet (195 and 170m) in length. The western defences bow noticably outwards towards a possible gateway set approximately centrally in this side. Local topography suggests that the eastern defences of this camp lies just to the west of Water Eaton Lane, while the southern defences may have run along the line of the service-road to Water Eaton House, and if this in the case the camp would have enclosed an area around 8 acres (c.3.3ha).
