Bossell Terrace: Unlisted
A beautifully constructed example of Victorian workers housing with many nice details including dressed random limestone with polychromatic brick dressings, decorative chimney pots and finials. Built along an ancient burgage plot in the manner that was traditional in Buckfastleigh, the terrace is, however, the most formal example of that development tradition.


Ordnance Survey, 2014, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV355681.

The modern map shows the terrace to be unchanged from the late 19th century layout.
