SX 69 SE THROWLEIGH

1/210 Dung pit approximately 2 metres - south of Higher Shilstone 20.7.74 Farmhouse GV II

Dung pit. Probably C17. Lined with large roughly-shaped granite blocks it is terraced into the hillslope and open on its downhill (east) end. The south side is parallel with the barn and calf house from which it is separated only by a narrow path. From the top (west) end the wall curves back down the other side. This dung pit forms a group with Higher Shilstone Farmhouse and stables (q.v) and its associated farmbuildings (also listed). The farmhouse is one of the best surviving examples of a Dartmoor longhouse and therefore this group is of immense importance.
