Full description

Cottages on Silver Street: Unlisted
The row of cottages on the southwest side of Silver Street are individually modest and some have had alterations that have reduced their historic character. Together they have great group value and are a cherished part of historic Buckfastleigh.

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

The modern map shows little has changed to the main section of the terrace. At the south-eastern end some alterations have been made to the end of terrace (no 1 Silver Street) and at the north-western end of the row some of the buildings that were located behind (south of) numbers 17 and 18 are now gone.
