|NT788084||c.885 x c.935 ft|
(c.270 x c.285 m)
|an almost square camp is partly overlain on its N by the S defences of Camp-III, the Chew Green fort (IV) lies wholly within the defences of this camp towards the W side, and later fortlet and annexe (V) partly obliterated the camps E defences, no gateways are known except in the middle of the W side which is coincident with the W gateway of the fort. Dere Street passes close by the E side but the defences were not aligned with the road, being about 165 feet (c.50m) distant at the camps S end and around 100 feet (c.30m) to the N.|

(c.185 x c.300 m)
|this camp is a parallelogram with its S extremity overlapping the N defences of Camp-I. There are Gateways in the centre of the shorter N & S sides, the N protected by an external titulum; there are several gaps in the E & W defences but the only confirmed gateway appears on the W side, just N of the defences of Camp-I, where an external titulum marks this particular gap in the rampart as a defended gateway; there is a corresponding gap placed roughly opposite with no extra defences which may also have been a gate. Dere Street passes by between 80-200 feet (25-60m) away to the E, the camp is not aligned on it but rather utilizes the local topography to advantage.|
Aside from the fortlet at Chew Green (NT7808) and another nearby at Brownhart Law (NT7909), there are also several Roman marching camps in the area; two at Chew Green itself (NT7808; see below), three to the north at Pennymuir (NT7513), and another two to the south at Featherwood (NT8105). In addition, there is a Roman Practice Works at Woden Law, a little way to the north (NT7612) near the Pennymuir camps, one of only three such works in Scotland, the other two being located at Burnswark in Dumfries & Galloway.
