Full Description

A ruined brick built cottage, thought to be of a late 19th or early 20th Century date, was noted in this location. [1] There is no building located in this location on the Lynton and Lynmouth Tithe Map or on the 1st or 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps. However, a building within a small walled enclosure can be seen on aerial photographs taken by the Royal Air Force in 1946-8. [2-5] The outline of the building is still recorded on modern MasterMap data. [6]
