Grindon School Roman Camp

There was a Roman temporary camp at Grindon, just south of Hadrian's Wall. There are few visible remains today because of farming over the years. It survives as a series of ploughed-down earthworks, indicating a square shaped camp measuring about 45m across, with ramparts.[1]. The location of this small camp is unusual, because of the lack of natural defences. The site is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
