Details Cropmarks of an enclosure. First photographed from the railway bridge to the west on 17/10/1939 by O G S Crawford. He noted it as indicating the ditch of a rectangular enclosure. Its west side being 61.3m long, the north 47.5m, and the east 39.3m. The corners and any entrance were not visible. When visited by the OS in 1967, the site of this squarish enclosure occupying a low-lying position in a slightly undulating field, was under potato crop. It was defined by a low, spread, earthen bank. This appears on the 2006 OS map. The same three sides of the enclosure which Crawford recorded were seen as soil marks in the spring of 1981 by Sherriff. He suggested that the southern side seems to follow the path of the modern road, and was not seen, differing from the survey published on the OS map. A systematic search of the interior of the site after ploughing failed to find any artifacts of earlier than the 19th century. Its proximity to the Roman camp may, however, be significant.
