Location formerly cited as NT 7135 3355.

Cauld [NR]

OS 1:10,000 map, 1993.

The 1993 edition of the OS 1:10,000 map depicts this structure as spanning the River Teviot diagonally between NT c. 71338 33584 and NT c. 71363 33481. The river here forms the boundary between the parishes of Roxburgh (to the W) and Kelso (to the E).

The function and purpose of this weir remain unclear. There is no watermill in clear association with it.

Sbc Note

At the west end of the site there are the remains of an old dam or cauld. There is a local tradition which claims that the purpose of the dam was to provide water to flood the castle ditch (the different water levels make this very unlikely)
