Hegarty, C. + Knight, S. + Sims, R., 2014-2015, East and Mid Devon River Catchments National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV356883.

Orchard tree planting banks of probable post medieval to mid-20th century date were visible as earthwork banks between Middle and Higher Shutelake Farms, on digital images derived from lidar data captured in 2010.
Evidence of at least 13 surviving banks between approximately 3 to 6 metres broad is visible; the earthworks are orientated roughly west-north-west to east-south-east over an area of approximately 1.2 hectares. The visible earthworks are a small survival of previously very extensive orchards that covered many of the fields surrounding Middle and Higher Shutelake Farms, as depicted on the Ordnance Survey second edition 25 inch map. A significant number of the orchards at Middle and Higher Shutelake survived to be visible on aerial photographs of 1946 but most were later cleared.
