Full Description

The 2003 Conservation Area appraisal for Bossington and West Lynch advises "Bossington Farmhouse and its outbuildings grouped around a cobbled yard form an attractive group ranging in date from c.1800 to the latter part of the 19th Century." [1] The site is labelled "Bossington Farm" on the 25 inch 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map. [2] The core of the farmstead appears to be unchanged in plan form from the 1st Edition map on the 2022 MasterMap data. There are several larger buidlings, likely modern agricultural structures, shown to the west and southwest of the historic core of the farm. [3] Bossington Farm is gable end on to the road with its associated farm buildings set back and angled away from the main frontages. It may have owned the linhay across the road (MSO10710). [4]
