Description"....Ditches suggested by one of St Joseph's prints. Excavation discovered much Roman stuff, including roofing tiles and Antonine pottery". (2) Heaps of turf and stone near the homestead of Low Learchild indicate that it was once a more considerable place. In the surrounding green are remains of old earthen enclosures. (3) Extends from NU 10101146 to NU 10191124. The situation of the fort is on a slight rise with a fine view on all sides except where overlooked by the high ground about 600.m to the east. Surface indications are very slight,the fields concerned, although now under pasture, have been ploughed many times. There is a 'bump' in the occupation road at NU 10101146 which marks the northern rampart, and another in the hedge at NU 10191139 indicates the eastern limit of the fort. In the two fields to the east of the road the rampart is visible when viewed from a distance as a very slight bank...."
