You can tell a builder from an archaeologist by the size of his trowel. Mine is a small one!

Do we know the area covered by Wooler camp and if it included Doddington Moor (South)?

Most of the training area is in Cumbria but part is in County Durham as I found during my BD days. Just where the town of Warcop lies geographically I can't say. I've been in the dark since the county lines were changed!

I believe Warcop was in Westmorland, then became Cumbria.
