Field Visit (2016)

NY 3794 8153 The rectangular pond at the NE corner of the Roman fort is set diagonally within a rectangular mound, such that the NE and SW corners are extant. The mound is steep-sided, 2m high, 80m by 20m, top width 15m. A wall runs along the W crest. Plantation banks, probably 18th century, cross the S end of the mound, cutting through this wall, but are cut through by the pond. This suggests the mound is older than 18th century. With thanks to the Buccleuch Estate for permission to undertake this work.
