Full Description

The house is not depicted on the 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey map. [1] Aerial photographs taken in 1946-8 by the Royal Air Force show the house. [2] 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. [3]
