Larkbarrow  (Ruin)
Larkbarrow (Ruin)
The 19th C. farmhouse was used for artillery target practice during WWII, hence the ruin. Surrounding land has yielded much evidence of prior occupation, including the eponymous bronze-age barrow, flint working and standing stones. The farm is supposed to have been the inspiration for 'Plover's Barrows Farm', the home of John Ridd in Lorna Doone.
