Full description

Collings, A. G. + Manning, P. T. + Valentin, J., 2007, The North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Phase 1. Archaeological Survey. Summary Report (Report - Assessment). SDV339712.

Two of seven buildings of Portledge Farm removed between 1838 Tithe Map and 1886 Ordnance Surver map. Other details: 2407.


Dean, R., 2015, Land at Portledge House, Fairy Cross, Alwington: An Archaeological Gradiometer and Earth-resistance Survey (Report - Geophysical Survey). SDV360942.

This report was commissioned as part of a programme of archaeological works undertaken in support of a planning application at Land at Portledge House, Fairy Cross, Alwington.

One resistance anomaly approximately coincides with the location of a former farm building and may indicate the presence of demolition debris and wall footings of that structure. Group 120 may represent a deposit of stony material with relatively straight northern and eastern edges. The group is in the vicinity of a former farm building removed before 1886 and may indicate the demolition remains that building.
