Steinmetzer, M., 2014, Archaeological monitoring and recording at Shuttaford Farm, Holne, Devon, 1 (Report - Watching Brief). SDV356710.

A watching brief was maintained during works associated with the removal of existing concrete floor surfaces in the lounge and study to a depth of 0.35-0.4 metres. The removal of these floors exposed no deposits, features or dating evidence indicative of archaeological activity.

Roof over hall and higher end circa C18, trusses have side pegged morticed apices and lap-jointed collars. The rafters and purlins have been replaced.

There is no evidence to suggest there was an open hall because the roof is a replacement, but the lower end could have been a shippon originally.

Steinmetzer, M., 2015, Archaeological monitoring and recording at Shuttaford Farm, Holne, Devon, 1 (Report - Watching Brief). SDV359786.

A watching brief was undertaken on groundworks for an extension at the eastern end of the house. No deposits, features or dating evidence indicative of archaeological activity was found. The lack of pottery and lithics from the site, despite examination of spoil heaps, further indicates that the site is archaeologically sterile.
