Baines, C., 2009, Building to south-west of Chivenor Airfield (Personal Comment). SDV342343.

Remains of building, possibly a linhay with attached pound, across field boundary at south-west corner of airfield. Probably belonged to Marsh Farm which was destroyed when Barnstaple Airport (now Royal Marine Barracks Chivenor) was constructed in the 1930s. The building probably survived because it was just outside the perimeter.
