Full description

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

Depicted on the Tithe Map; 780 on Apportionment. Southern building (possible dwelling) is rectangular in shape, aligned east-west. The associated building to the north-west is L-shaped.

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

'Hannaford's Barn' depicted on the late 19th century map; L-shaped building to the south east, with a rectangular building north-west, across a yard. Both buildings have changed from the Tithe Map depiction and may be a replacements, although it is possible this represents alterations to the structure rather than replacement.

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

Layout of the buildings remain unchanged from the late 19th / early 20th century historic map depictions.

GeoInformation Group Ltd, 2010, 1:625 2010 Colour (12.5cm resolution) (Aerial Photograph). SDV346026.

Potentially the north-western building remains, but the L-shaped south-eastern structure is no longer in existence; the southern side of the structure appears to be completely gone, the northern section of the L appears to be in ruins (at least without a roof at this time).

White, P., 2013, Previously Unsurveyed Dartmoor Historic Farmsteads (Un-published). SDV352501.

Included on list. No further detail provided.

Google, 2014, Google Streetview (Website). SDV355684.

There is an aerial image dated to 2014 that shows part of the old L-shaped building to have been roofed between 2010 and 2014. Not in use as a dwelling.

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

'Hannaford's' on the modern mapping indicates that little remains of the original layout of buildings.
