Whittondean Farm (Whitton and Tosson)
This is the remains of a medieval sheep farm. It includes a series of well-preserved stone enclosures. They are all set within a larger earth and stone enclosure. An enclosure located at the northern corner of the monument is the site of a rectangular building. It is thought that the monks at Brinkburn Priory owned this farm. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
