HER Number:MDV108570
Name:3 Bossell Road, Buskfastleigh


Building dates to the mid-late 19th century, based on cartographic evidence. Not shown on the Tithe Map, it is depicted on the late 19th century historic map, along with the Primary School, which was built in 1875. It is quite possible this building was associated with the school, perhaps as headmasters accommodation, for example. Date stone on the façade facing the road may read 1878.
