Thorne Farm

Thorne is a hamlet near Whitstone in Cornwall, at SX276995, on a hill overlooking the River Tamar flowing below to the east, across which lies Devon. The B3254 runs north-south to the west of the hamlet.

This was a mediæval manor and the Domesday Book of 1086 records that it then had land for one plough and 20 acres of pasture.[1][2]
