Roman camp, 1.58km west of North Yardhope

  • Description

    ".....Despite some damage by land drains, the Roman temporary camp at Yardhope survives well. It is one of a network of camps in Redesdale associated with Dere Street and the fort of High Rochester and will contribute to our understanding of the Roman occupation of Northern Britain....The monument includes a Roman temporary camp situated near the end of a level promontory effected by the confluence of the Longtae Burn and Trouty Sike; the camp lies 40m north of the Roman branch road which connects the fort of High Rochester with Dere Street, the Roman road from Corbridge to Newstead in Scotland. The camp, roughly rectangular in shape with rounded corners, measures a maximum of 140m north-south by 146m east-west within a substantial rampart 3m wide and up to 1m in height. There is a 3m wide external ditch on all sides except the north...."
