012 [Situation] In the Southern portion of the Parish of Lyne
Situated on an elevated piece of table land on the farm of Hamildean at about ¼th of a mile west from Lyne Church, are the remains of a very large Roman Camp, consisting of three sides of a parallelogram with round corners, And formed by two embankments from 1 to 4 feet high and a trench 16 feet in breadth behind them. In the middle of each Side are the entrances. It is however imperfect, owing to having been ploughed over, and all traces of the mounds at the north side, obliterated, thereby destroying one of the most interesting memorials of the Romans, in this Country.
