Vis=16/9/1992 (simpson and noble) the position of reddicks farms is shown and labelled on os 6" (1890). On the os 6" (1969) map only the roughly l-shaped barn and linhay are shown. The farm is no longer standing above ground but the barn and linhay survive in a ruined state covered in undergrowth. The barn was of random chert walls with a cob superstructure with two opposing doorways. The remains of 2 roofs, (the earliest formerly pegged and thatched, the most recent corrugated iron) lay around the ruins. There was once a threshing floor in the barn. The linhay had chert stone columns along the se (open) side, only 2 now remain.

DBA undertaken along a corridor associated with the A30/A303 between Honiton and Devonshire Inn. This study is intended to inform the development of options for improvements to the A30/A303 between Honiton and Devonshire Inn.

Ruinous remains of the former Reddick’s Farm were noted located within heavily overgrown land on the edge of woodland on the west slopes of Reddick’s Hill (Figure 5, WA 110). The farm is depicted on
the 1840s Tithe Map and is likely to have been post-medieval.
