HER Number:MDV122073
Name:Great Doccombe Farmstead, Moretonhampstead


Farmstead dates to at least the 16th century, based on the age of the farmhouse, however documentary sources for Doccombe exist dating back to the 14th century, so it is possible that it has older origins. A number of buildings shown on the 19th century historic maps survive.
