Monument Type(s) and Dates

  • TERRACE (XVIII to XIX - 1800 AD? to 1840 AD (Between))

Full description

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

Depicted on the Tithe Map as a continuous row of dwellings running from the rear of the terrace on Silver Street in a north-easterly direction, then fronting the eastern end of Silver Street. No individual divisions depicted.

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

The late 19th century historic map shows the terrace and largely matches the Tithe Map, although the separate properties are depicted and Sherwell Mill is now depicted at the south-western end of the terrace.

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

Unchanged from the late 19th century depiction.

Ordnance Survey, 1930 - 1939, Fourth Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV336668.

No discernible change from the early 20th century historic map to the layout of the terrace although the mill is now recorded as being 'disused'.

Dartmoor National Park Authority, 2012, Buckfastleigh Conservation Area Appraisal, 27-28 (Report - Assessment). SDV357481.

Sherwell Court - unlisted
Sherwell Court, the row of cottages that lines the former entrance to Sherwell Mill, are very attractive and appear to pre-date the mill as they are on the tithe map. Together with the terrace on Silver Street they have great group value and are a cherished part of historic Buckfastleigh.

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

The modern map shows the main section of the terrace. Remains the same as the historic map depictions but the north-eastern end (that fronted onto Silver Street has now gone and the range of buildings is now separate from the Bridge Street buildings (9 and 10).
