Full description

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

The Tithe Map shows a group of gardens here associated with the Marley Estate. The apportionment also records 'gardeners houses'. The map shows one large rectangular building at this location and what appears to be a pair of semi-detached houses on the northern side of the larger rectangular garden (with a shrubbery bordering it to the north). Pathways lead southwards to Marley.

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

The late 19th century map shows a terrace of three houses with gardens have been constructed (or adapted from the older rectangular structure shown on the Tithe Map). A range of buildings is now shown on the northern side of the rectangular garden.

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

Appears unchanged from the late 19th century historic map.

The 1940s aerial photograph is unclear for this site, although the structures still appear to exist in some form. This version of the photography shows the entire site obscured by tree cover.
