The fort is quite clear but the main area has been well ploughed over the years and now consists of a smooth, flat interior with smoothly sloping banks. The triangle to the S has probably been ploughed less but there is still little to see, and this is the upper side with a less noticeable bank.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of Roman invasion and control. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
