Located 80 yards S. of the S.W.-angle of Carrawburgh Fort, situated W. of 31 milecastle and 4 miles W. of the North Tyne at Cholterford.

The temple of Mithras was excavated by I. A. Richmond and J. P. Gillam, disclosing three main stages of development, the second exhibiting two reconstructions. The earliest shire was a small one, and had been deliberately dismantled. It contained the usual anteroom and nave with raised couches or benches at each side, and a daïs for altars at the far end.
