Lower Sessland Farm including cob walls adjoining to north west and south west, Sessland Lane, South Tawton - West Devon

Late medieval thatched farmhouse with later additions, including C17 hall bay and parlour wing. Further C17 addition to north west has been used as a separate cottage, and since 2012 has been vacant and in very poor condition, with severe water penetration and decay of thatch and roof timbers. Temporary protection was erected in 2006 following an Urgent Works Notice. The building has now been returned to single ownership and a scheme of repairs is underway for use as a farm cottage.
