Possible site of a Roman camp near Howburn Cottages (Melkridge)
Early 20th century writers reported the remains of a Roman camp in a ploughed field just north of Howburn Cottages. At this time, the remains of ramparts and ditches surrounding a rectangular enclosure could be seen. Today, ploughing has caused the destruction of any visible remains of the camp.
The Historic maps option is only available when the map scale is between 2500 and 10000.
