Name:Site of Cantrell farmstead, Ugborough


Site of Cantrell farm, Ugborough. Historic farmstead first mentioned in 1330 but not recorded on historic maps until the mid-19th century (Tithe Map). Used to be part of the Torpeek Manor and originally is thought to have only consisted of farm buildings. A farmhouse was added in the early 20th century. In the early 21st century the shippon and other farm buildings were converted for use as dwellings.
