Archaeology Notes

NT81NE 29 8548 1842 to 8609 1848.

(NT 8548 1842 - NT 8562 1829: NT 8567 1825 - NT 8577 1817 - NT 8609 1848) Earthwork (NR)

OS 6" map, Roxburghshire, (1923).

This linear earthwork, to all appearance considerably later than NT81NE 31, which is in close proximity, starts near the W corner of the wood above Cocklawfoot house, and, after running SE for a quarter of a mile, turns NE for rather more than that distance and ends in a natural fissure above the Kingseat Burn. Where best preserved, it consists of a bank about 13' thick at the base and 3' high, with a ditch up to 4' wide on its upper side. It is clearly a land boundary, and within it can be traced field divisions and the foundations of a farmstead of no great age.

As described by the RCAHMS. Not an antiquity.

Visited by OS (JLD) 24 August 1960.
