Introduction

Land at Bovisand Lane, Down Thomas, Wembury, Devon (OASIS ID: acarchae2-272789)

This archive documents the historic building recording of a barn and an air raid shelter which was undertaken by AC archaeology in November 2016 prior to their demolition. The barn formed part of the adjacent Paige's Farm, and is possibly of 18th-century date. It probably functioned as a cider barn. The air raid shelter was constructed during the Second World War to protect those living and working at and near the farm. It may have been constructed due to the proximity of the farm to a nearby bombing decoy.
