Full description

Morris, B., 11/08/2014, Land at Shortlands Lane Cullompton, Devon. Results of a Desk-Based Assessment and Archaeological Excavation, 17 (Report - Excavation). SDV359548.

Shortlands Lane runs broadly parallel to Fore Street at the western end of the burgage plots. The lane probably acquired its name from Shortlands House, the word deriving from open field terminology, literally the short lands at the end of the furlong. It is suggested that it may preserve the line of a Roman road.
