Full description

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

Lanehead is depicted on the Tithe Map, 858 on the Peter Tavy apportionment: ('house and courtlage'). Map shows a simple holding consisting of a long narrow rectangular dwelling to the north of the yard, aligned roughly north-east by south-west, and a small outbuilding to the south.

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

'Lanehead' on the late 19th century map still has the southern outbuilding but there is a new building at the north of the site, aligned north-west by south-east, which may be a new farmhouse; the original dwelling building shown on the Tithe Map appears to have been truncated as is shown much smaller on this map.

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

The early 20th century historic map shows the southern outbuilding is now gone and a number of new buildings have been constructed on the eastern side of the yard. The farmhouse now adjoins the old building to the south-west, which has been extended north-eastwards.
