North Kidwell Farm. The nature of medieval settlement in this area is unclear but two buildings and a spring are shown in this location on the Uplowman Tithe Map of 1842. Prior to site clearance for the North Devon Link Road these were represented by a barn considered to be 19th century in date. The barn had been demolished prior to the watching brief, although the site itself was not actually affected by the road.
