Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

Not depicted on the Tithe Map. An older house apparently pre-dated the shippon.

Beeson, M. M. R. + Masterman, M. C. H., 1979, An Archaeological Survey of Enclosed Land in Widecombe-In-The-Moor Parish, Vol IV, 817 (Report - Survey). SDV337078.

Visited 3/7/1979. Old house has been demolished and a barn on a different axis erected in its place. The date over the door arch reads 1863, apparently the pieces of the date stone were incorporated in the old porch and read 1653, alteration of the letters is visible. A small recess under the step, is described by the owner as a duck house. The barn is original but built after the tithe map date. In the corner of the yard nearest the road water enters through the wall into a rhomboid trough made of granite but with thinner sides than usual. There is a linteled recess just beside it. The water used to flow in the open across the yard, but the owner has put it underground.
