Haynes, R. G., 1966-1969, Ruined Sites on Dartmoor, 133 (Un-published). SDV150434.

Site visit 19th March 1966. Located a short distance to the east of Whithill Farm in the corner of a field, approached from the south by a short sunken land and via a lane west from the yard which went originally via Whithill to the Ward Bridge-Merrivale road. There is apparently one main house on a north-west to south-east axis with outbuildings on the thres sides of the yard. This rough corner has apparently never been worth the trouble of clearing and consequently trees and undergrown have grown over it and the buildings are in fairly good order with some walls standing as high as 5-6 feet.
