Teignhead Farm

Teignhead Farm originated from the late 1700s when it was built, and I have been informed (thank you to Star who has family who farm nearby) that it was certainly still in use up to 1943, when it was requisitioned by the MOD. The farm was never returned after the war and it is now a ruin which sits not far from the edge of Fernworthy Forest just across the pretty Teignhead clapper bridge, Sittaford Tor and Grey Wethers are close by also. There is still part of the house standing and the fireplace can clearly be seen. The field walls surrounding the farm are still in place along with a number of gateposts.and the whole farm sits in a number of trees. Its a lovely spot which sees a number of wildcampers visit regularly.
