Welcome to featured Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of the featured Wikipedia article every day.
The featured article for Friday, 23 November 2018 is Nico Ditch.
Nico Ditch is a six-mile (9.7 km) long linear earthwork between Ashton-under-Lyne and Stretford in Greater Manchester, England. It was dug as a defensive fortification, or possibly a boundary marker, between the 5th and 11th centuries.
The ditch is still visible in short sections, such as a 330-yard stretch in Denton Golf Course. In the parts which survive, the ditch is 4–5 yards wide and up to 5 feet deep. Part of the earthwork is protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
