Full description

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

'Longbitter' is depicted on the late 19th century historic map with two main buildings and one or two very small outbuildings.


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

The early 20th century historic map is largely unchanged from the late 19th century depiction, although the farm's name has now been recorded as 'Longbettor'.


Gover, J. E. B. + Mawer, A. + Stenton, F. M., 1931, The Place-Names of Devon: Part One, 233 (Monograph). SDV1312.

'Longbettor' is probably referred to in 'Beatoryeate' (1514), the 'long' part being a later addition.
