Okehampton Roman Fortlet

Hob Uid: 1035102
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Okehampton
Grid Ref : SX5958095930
Summary : A Roman fortlet lying immediately next to the Okehampton Roman fort. It is square in shape with rounded corners and measures 50 metres square. It survives as a buried ditched feature and has been cut on its eastern side by an electricity substation and to the south east by a field boundary.
More information : SX 5958 9593 (FCE) A rapid examination of air photography (1a) suggests the presence of a probable Roman fortlet, visible as cropmarks of a square enclosure with rounded corners immediately south of the Roman fort SX 59 NE 14 (and on a similar alignment). There are no clear indications of any entrances but not all of the defensive circuit is clear. Although the site has been ploughed, it is pasture in 1990 (although housing is beginning to encroach).
