Full Description

The farmstead is shown on the Tithe Map for Hawkridge as a small group of farm buildings situated in land parcel 133. This was described as "House Court Garden etc" in the accompanying apportionment. These were in the ownership of the Earl of Carnarvon and occupied by John Bawden. At this point, the group included the farmhouse (MSO10791), attached shippon (MEM22419), bank barn (MEM22418) and a large building sitiuated approximately in the position of the present pigsties or calf house (MEM22421). This appears to have been replaced by the more recent structure by the time the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map was surveyed and the linhay (MEM22420) and possible sheep shelter to the north (MEM22422) had also been constructed by this time. The farmstead has since been subject to small additions and extensions. [1-4] The farmstead was visited in January 1997. It was said to be beautifully sited, facing south across the flank of a little combe and surrounded by little regular fields. Most farming activities had apparently moved to the north. [5]
