Archaeology Notes

NT03SE 17 0983 3309

(NT 0982 3309) Cardon (NR) (Site of)

OS 6" map, (1967).

Cardon (Site). No structural remains now survive of the old house or tower of Cardon, the building apparently having disappeared well before the middle of the 19th century. A few fragments of pink sandstone dessings, one of them wrought with a quirked edge-roll of 16th century date, are, however, incorporated in the existing farm buildings, and it seems reasonable to suppose that these fragments once formed part of the old house which, in the 15th and 16th centuries, was the residence of the Bowmakers of Cardon.

RCAHMS 1967, visited 1958.

As described by RCAHMS.

Visited by OS (DWR), 7 September 1972.
