Name:Original farmhouse at South Hookney, North Bovey


No longer extant. The old farmhouse at South Hookney is likely to have been a longhouse and was positioned almost parallel to the threshing barn at the southern side of the farm. It was replaced in the early 20th century by the house to the north-west.

Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

Farmhouse is depicted on the Tithe Map, parallel to the barn on the southern side of the yard.

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

Farmhouse still depicted on the early 20th century map. Due to the accuracy of the historic mapping when overlaid with the modern mapping, this building appears closer to the barn than it is - see the historic map for clarification.

Dartmoor National Park Authority, 2003 - 2005, Dartmoor National Park Authority Farmstead Survey 2003-2005, HF184 (Report - Survey). SDV344545.

The farmhouse is a replacement of an earlier one which the tithe map shows as occupying the north-western side of the current yard - opposite, almost parallel and on the same gradient as the threshing barn, and possibly, therefore, a longhouse.
