Full description

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

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

Comparison between the Tithe Map and the 1880s-1890s Ordnance Survey map shows John Hippisley's new road to have been built on the south side of the tree avenue. The old road appears to have been partially retained as a foot path through the park.
