MONUMENT NO. 1480225

DESCRIPTION + /

Hoar Oak was probably constructed some time in the early 19th century, after the Royal Forest of Exmoor ceased to exist. According to the Tithe Apportionment for Lynton of 1839, the house and land around it was owned by John Vellacott. It was let to various tenants throughout the 19th century and leased to Frederic Knight some time after 1867, who installed a Scottish Shepherd here and used it as a base for The Chains herding.
