Archaeology Notes

NY18SW 96 11329 82085

RCAHMS aerial survey has located a fort on the left bank of the Dryfe Water, c.300m above its confluence with the Annan. The site lies c.600m W of the camp at Torwood (NY18SW 11). The fort measures c.180m by at least 110m (c.5 acres) within a system of 5 ditches, whose disposition suggests at least two periods. Erosion by the Dryfe on the NW side has largely destroyed the annexe on that side.

S S Frere 1990

Listed as Roman fort.
