Nico Ditch (occasionally Mickle Ditch or Nikker) is a linear earthwork, six miles (9.7 km) long, running between Ashton-under-Lyne and Stretford in Greater Manchester, England. It may have been dug as a defensive fortification, or possibly a boundary marker. It was constructed some time between the 5th and 11th centuries AD.
