Full description

Outside the garde foux, to the south of and between the store and Barrack 3 is a partially visible length of roughly dressed limestone rubble walling. This may represent either the north or south wall of a latrine, althouth its interpretation as such is open to the objection in that it lies outside the line of the putative musketry wall.
