Grindon School Roman temporary camp

  • Description

    "....It survives as a series of earthworks. This small camp lies in an unusual position, towards the bottom of the shallow valley of the Settlingstones Burn. The situation lacks any natural defences. The view from the camp is severely restricted to the north, and to a lesser extent to the south and west. However, the view to the east is open. The camp is approximately square in plan and measures 45m across internally. Details of the camp are difficult to discern due to the later ridge and furrow that extends across the site from north to south and masks earlier remains. Modern farming activities have contributed to the erosion of the site. The best preserved sections of the rampart in the north and west are denuded and do not exceed 0.3m in height...."
