Earthworks and cropmarks visible on aerial photographs at circa SS24122168, are probably the remains of the deserted medieval farmstead or hamlet, shown on the First Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map and later maps as Dadworthy. The remains of field or farmstead paddock or infield boundaries remain visible as earthwork banks. The earthwork ditches, hollows or terraces correspond closely with boundaries depicted on the 1844 tithe map for Hartland the first edition Ordnance survey map of the 1880s-1890s. A large oval cropmark, centred on circa SS24072168, might indicate the below ground survival of a further building platform, not depicted on the historic maps.
