FORT (Remains of) [Todshaw Moss] Camp William Hyslop Farmer Todshawhill
William Paterson Farmer Twiglees
035 [Situation] About 1/2 Mile E by S [East by South] from Twiglees
This place was pointed out to me by Mr. William Hyslop (upon whose farm it is situate) as being the site of an Encampment, he says that his predecessors informed him that from time immemorial it had been considered as such. It is much obliterated but the fosse on the south side is quite distinct, it is also visible in other parts.
This appears to be a camp of British origin.
