Lanarkshire -- Lamington and Wandel Parish

Camp contd:
"farm house of Cold Chapel there are two camps on the opposite sides of Hawkwood Burn, from which they must have been supplied with water. The first is an irregular square, measuring diagonally 165 by 150 feet situated on a small piece of level ground, and its rampart is in excellent preservation. The other (See Plan 43-9-6) is very irregular in form, measures 254 by 220 feet in its longest dimensions, is less distinctly marked and lies on the first gentle rise of the hill. These Camps appear to have been connected with another on the opposite bank of the Clyde forming with it an equilateral triange." (On the ancient Camps of the Upper Ward of Lanarkshire by G V Irving Esqr)

At the end there is a reference from Hawkwood Burn (marked *) to - See Coldchapel Burn.
