Keys to the Past

Enclosures and earthworks, Catcleugh (Kielder)

On the north bank of the Cat Cleugh, at an unknown period in the past, people created a semi-circular enclosure surrounded by a bank. West of this enclosure are the remains of a post-medieval farmhouse, visible today as earthworks. The field boundaries associated with this farm extend through the semi-circular enclosure, proving that it must have been built before the post-medieval farm was laid out.
