001 [Situation] A few chains South of Walton

A Roman Station or encampment on a small eminence, at the south side of Walton Farmhouse, (the place where the present Stackyard stands) It seems to have been of a rectangular form and has the appearance of having been surrounded by a ditch but it is so defaced and levelled at the present time, that a correct idea Cannot be formed of its works of defence There is no doubt but it was a Roman Station, but is supposed to have been of Minor importance There is no probability that the great Roman Wall from the Forth to the Clyde ever came to this station
