HER Number:MDV107289
Name:Foxhams Farm, Horrabridge

Summary

Farmstead appears to date to at least the early-mid 19th century, based on the cartographic evidence. Depicted on the Tithe Map as an unnamed smallholding, the late 19th century historic map shows the farm to have expanded with a number of new buildings. Sometime between 1950 and the 1990s, the dwelling was doubled in size; it's not clear whether any 19th century fabric remains.
