NT 445 353. Enclosure, Caddonfoot: visible on air photographs.

NT 4458 3534. A ploughed-down, subrectangular ditched enclosure is situated on arable ground at Caddonlee farm. It is subdivided and measures 36.0 m by 24.0 m and is traceable as a spread ditch which is approximately 3.7 m wide and up to 0.2 m deep. There is no evidence of an upcast bank. It cannot be dismissed as a minor feature and only excavation will reveal its origin and purpose.
Ditches surveyed at 1:2500.
Visited by OS (MJF) 1 December 1979
