Remarks I found a reference to a "Cage" in the Acle Tithe Map apportionments of 1838 - Plot 92a. Neither 92 nor 92a appear on the accompanying Tithe map; but the 90s are around what is (currently) a Co-op supermarket. So I'll say probably located at Grid Reference: TG 4011 1017. Found by myself during research, using The Genealogist website, into the Halvergate Marshes as part of the Water, Mills & Marshes project of the Broads - under supervision of Prof Tom Williamson of History, University of East Anglia. The Archive Centre, County Hall, Norwich holds the actual Tithe Maps and Apportionments.
'Plot 92a; Landowner the Right Honerable Lord Calthorpe; Occupier Acle Constables; Description of Plot = Cage; the "Quantity in Statute Measure - A. R. P. is Acres 0, Rods 0, Perches 1. [pretty small ! ] '
