This camp was discovered on aerial photographs in 1982 and a section cut across the SW defences later that year found the ditch to be 12¼ ft. wide by about 3½ ft. deep (3.75 x c.1 m). It is thought that this camp was constructed during a reconnaissance in force into the territories of the Votadini and is contemporary with the camp on the opposite (west) side of Dere Street at Milrighall.
