Challacombe Farm and Valley, Devon


  • Located in Postbridge, Devon, South West England, England
  • The Harvey British Mountain Map 'Dartmoor' map has a 'Medieval Road' running north/south down the valley to Challacombe Medieval Hamlet. In the northern section of what we call Challacombe Valley is Headland Warren Farm. To the south is Challacombe Farm. Along the west flank of the valley are Challacombe Medieval Strip Fields. Above these strips to the north west is Challacombe Stone Row. On the east flank of the valley is English Heritage's Grimspound. The deep scars in the landscape are the result of medieval tin mining at Vitifer Tin Mine (Disused). Some of the gullies are huge. The Harvey British Mountain Map 'Dartmoor' map refers to Chew Gully which is particularly impressive. Also note the wall that runs east/west across Challacombe Down. This barrier was part of the local rabbit farming industry at Headland Warren. Rabbits provided meat for the tin miners
  • Challacombe Farm is part of the Duchy of Cornwall estate
