Darlick

Hob Uid: 1053787
Location :
Devon
North Devon
North Molton
Grid Ref : SS7779633393
Summary : The settlement of Darlick, North Molton, is first mentioned in 1651 and appears on later maps. The date of its desertion is uncertain, but a census record from 1911 exists, suggesting it was inhabited at this date. The settlement now takes the form of a rectangular enclosure measuring approximately 50m by 40m. There are remains of buildings and platforms and a linear earthwork which may have carried water from a spring to the site. The house is a ruinous stone-built rectangular structure measuring 10.6m by 4.9m and is dominated by the western gable end and chimney stack which remains standing to its full height.
More information : The settlement of Darlick, North Molton, is first mentioned in 1651 and appears on later maps. The date of its desertion is uncertain. The settlement now takes the form of a rectangular enclosure measuring approximately 50m by 40m. There are remains of buildings and platforms and a linear earthwork which may have carried water from a spring to the site. The house is a ruinous stone-built rectangular structure measuring 10.6m by 4.9m and is dominated by the western gable end and chimney stack which remains standing to its full height. (1-5).

The infield and platforms described abouve, as well as the ruined building, are visible on aerial photographs as a series of earthworks. A nearby field system to the west is believed to be associated with the settlement here. The date of desertion is uncertain, but as a census return for the property from 1911 exists, it must have been after this date (6-7).
