A scatter of c500 clay pipe waster fragments dating from c1690-1710 were found during the Chudleigh Bypass roadworks in 1971. These were thought to derive from a clay pipe manufacturing site just to the north. A geophysical evaluation by Oxford Archaeotechnics in 2002 showed no evidence of the use of the land for clay pipe manufacture. Fragments of pipe stems & a bowl were found in the fill of engineering test pits to the southwest of Teign Lawn Villa around SX84657728 & in the northeastern corner of the site around SX84687739.
