Full description

Griffith, F. M., 1986, DAP/HN, 10-11 (Aerial Photograph). SDV339693.

Earthworks in the field immediately west of the present farm recorded from the air may indicate a shrunken settlement.

Watts, M., 2002, Week Farm, Milton Abbot, Devon, 2 (Report - Survey). SDV339695.

Week Farm once formed part of a larger settlement. Earthworks in field immediately to the west of the present farm were reocrded from the air in 1986. These are also evident from the ground, particularly in low sunlight. The Tithe Map shows a number of small fields to the west and north of the farm site. One of these is named Chapel Orchard and the small building indicated on the map may have been a chapel.
