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

Gover, J. E. B. + Mawer, A. + Stenton, F. M., 1931, The Place-Names of Devon: Part One, 248 (Monograph). SDV1312.

Collaton is 'Coleton' in the 1408 Assize Rolls and 'Collyton' in a 1445 deed.


Royal Air Force, 1946 - 1949, Royal Air Force Aerial Photographs (Aerial Photograph). SDV342938.

An agricultural building visible at SX5145775180 which appears to date to between 1907-1947. The building to the south-west of the farm and three in a line on the south-east side visible; two of these are gone by the later 20th century.


GetMapping, 1999 - 2000, Dartmoor 1999-2000 1:1250 Aerial Photography (digital) (Aerial Photograph). SDV345751.

This version of the aerial photography shows that two buildings are now lost: the most south-westerly of the group and the middle building of the line of three on the south-eastern side of the farm has fallen into disrepair; no sign of a roof.

Richards, A. F., 2014, Collaton farm building (Personal Comment). SDV356614.

Mastermap is actually missing a building at this farm; a replacement agricultural building approved in 2008 measuring 24 by 15 metres on the south side of the farm. Built on the site of building at SX5145775180 which appears to date to between 1907-1947 (see aerial photograph evidence). They have been notified.


Ordnance Survey, 2014, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV355681.

The extant buildings to the north of the group on the modern map are largely the same as the late 19th century depiction. There have been a number of changes to the south-east and west of the group where two of the buildings shown on the Tithe Map are now ruined/not depicted and an early-mid 20th century building is shown (but shouldn't be, as it was replaced with a large structure in 2008, although the map doesn't show this - see personal comment).
