Bunksland Farmhouse and attached outbuildings, East Anstey - North Devon

A remarkably unspoilt medieval farmhouse, multiphased, with a surviving C15 roof structure of some architectural detail and an interesting plan form. The property has been vacant since 2009 and has suffered from deterioration at the external cob wall as well as the collapse of an internal cob partition and roof truss supporting the floor above. Ownership uncertainties are delaying a resolution. Historic England has arranged for our engineer to visit the site to advise on temporary stablisation and protection works. Further discussions are to be held with the estate.
