HER Number:MDV121030
Name:Smallholding at Rendlestone Tor, Princetown


No longer extant, the late 19th century depicts a farm site west of the plantation, with at least two buildings. Also shown on the early 20th century historic map, was completely ruined by the later 1940s (ruined foundations visible on aerial photograph). May be the result of Duchy of Cornwall leases granted in the early 19th century.
