Full description

Wakeham, C. S., 2007, Archaeological Building Survey and Watching Brief at Loxbeare Barton, Loxbeare, Devon (Report - Watching Brief). SDV356370.

The initial impression of the complex is of a planned stockyard of the late 18th/early 19th century. Closer inspection reveals a more complex history, and traces of both earlier and later work survived. The origins of the yard, notably surviving in the stable, and perhaps also the root house, are c. 17th-century.
