Visited this one before, probably in 2006, but mislaid all details so was never recorded. All 3 today - Roman fort, amphitheatre and trig. Parked near rail crossing near old bridge pillars and walked up through site of amphitheatre. Good views of East Kent coastal area.

The pillar with Richborough power station in background.
Nice and clean !

We approached from the south via the Stour Valley Walk, parking next to the railway. A couple of fields get you to the trig via the Roman Ampitheatre, which is a grassy depression in the field. Plug with quite a lot of white paint. Plug with indented lettering.

Located about 50 meters across field from country lane (with near by passing place to park in) Pillar is in good condition and is painted white, views over the cooling towers at Sandwich.
