Planning application to undertake conversion of the garage / store area to become a dwelling. Includes re-roofing in tile, new windows and garage door in partially new frontage. Original fenestration design changed to help preserve the industrial design of the old smithy.


Dartmoor National Park Authority, 2005, Sticklepath Conservation Area Appraisal (Draft), 27 (Report - Assessment). SDV357556.

Old Smithy:
A utilitarian structure but an increasingly unusual survival – it is recorded as a smithy on the 19th century OS maps. The rusty corrugated iron roof and overlapping glazing on the upper floor have character and it makes a positive contribution to the streetscene.


Cartographic Engineering, 2006, Dartmoor 2006 1:1250 Aerial Photography (digital) (Aerial Photograph). SDV345590.

This aerial photograph shows the roof has been replaced with tiles by this time.


Google, 2014, Google Streetview (Website). SDV355684.

The 2011 image of this building shows a number of changes. As well as the roof being replaced, the windows and garage door are replacements, while the upper section of the building above the garage door has apparently been timber clad and painted white.


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

Modern map does not show this building separately; it is part of The Grove, Sticklepath.
