Prings and Scaddings was site of an 18th century tannery:
‘Devonshire. To be Let for a Term of 7 or 14 years, and entered upon immediately, all that Meffuage and Tenement called by the name of Prings and Scaddings, lately in the possession of Mr Clement Waldron, fituate at Madford, in the parifh of Hemiock .. comprifing of a Dwelling-houfe, Barn, and Outbuildings, and about twenty five acres of very good Orchard, Meadow and Pasture Land, well fituated for a Tannery, that Bufinefs having recently been carried on there ..’
[Exeter Flying Post 2 June 1796 p 2 col 3]. Situated by the Madford Water, a tributary of the Culm, and just downstream from Dunkeswell Abbey, it is very possible that there was originally a medieval tannery associated with the abbey here. Looking west-north-west
