018 Hill on the North side of Whitburgh House. On it are the remains of a Camp the tracings of which are becoming more indistinct by reason of the ploughing of the field. the hill is ploughed to its summit. Regarding this Camp much less its origin the people in the neighbourghood have no traditionary knowledge. And was it not for the remains I would have been unable to assign a Camp to Dodridge Law.
