Full description

Wessex Archaeology, 2001, Okehampton Camp Devon. Archaeological Desk Based Assessment and Earthwork Survey, 7 (Report - Survey). SDV360511.

Structure 2. Bisected by the northern boundary fence of the army camp. Comprises a slight hollow 2.2 by 3.1 metres inside the camp with an additional 3.3 metres of the structure outside. The interior and full extent of the structure are obsured by debris resulting from construction of an obstacle course. It is an outlying element of the well-defined deserted settlement to the north. Its small size precludes its use as a dwelling and it was probably, therefore, an ancilliary building, perhaps a barn or dairy.
