Full description

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

Building depicted at this location on the Tithe Map (54 on apportionment; 'plot'). Not shown as a dwelling so appears to be an outbuilding or workshop space. Building appears to be slightly narrower on the Tithe map than its modern depiction but this may be due to the skill of the illustrator, rather than suggesting the building has been replaced.

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

Depicted on the late 19th century historic map and is shown associated with the property to the north. This property is close to Higher Churchtown Farm but the map shows it connected by land parcels to Sunnyside, although the farm's land extends further south-west, close to the southern side of this building.
