Hutholes is an abandoned medieval settlement in Widecombe parish (probably 12th or 13th century).
It was made available for viewing to the public by Hermon French and his wife, Winnie. This is a general view of the site:
Hermon's early life cutting grass around the site (on his family's land) led to his recognising it for what it was, particularly after being told by an elder of the parish that lintels from Hutholes (the original Manor site), had been taken and used in the present Jordan Manor House.
Tony Beard has written about Hutholes in his Dartmoor Diary. Click here to read it.
