Hayes Barton

Hayes Barton

Excavation on the floodplain of the Exe at Flowerpot revealed the lost site of the substantial farm of Hayes Barton. The farm stood within a walled courtyard, with a second enclosure beside it. This was the scene of dramatic action in July 1643, when it was captured by Royalist troops. The farm was completely demolished following its capture.
