I thought there's a cottage behind the gates and assumed the FB would be there. Made no attempt to gain access though

The cottage has gone and was probably demolished during the construction of the North Devon link road (A361)in the late 80's. Old track exists to a gated lay-by on left of bend on road to Bish Mill and South Molton (B3227).
