Attested: AI (iter 2) Castra Exploratorum.
Where: Netherby, Cumberland, probably under 15th century Netherby Hall, NY396716.
Name origin: Latin: plural of castrum ‘military camp’ plus genitive plural of explorator ‘scout’.
Notes: Remains of a Roman fort and river port, for supply up the river Esk, here were mentioned by early writers, but have since been obliterated. This site is in Arthuret, possibly to be linked with post-Roman fighting. This site may also have been named Croucingo.
