MEM23268 - Foxtwitchen House (Building)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
The house is not depicted on the 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey map.  Aerial photographs taken in 1946-8 by the Royal Air Force show the house.  The site was considered as part of the Exmoor Farmsteads survey in 1997; however, the surveyor was advised that the site was "no longer a farm" and so he did not visit the property. It seems there may have been confusion about this site and Leys Farm to the southwest (MEM22415), which was previously named Foxtwitchen.
