Full description

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

Hammerslake shown on 19th century Tithe Map as an L-shaped building with a small rectangular building to the south-west. The Apportionment for 'Part of Hammeralake' lists Field Number 603 as 'Three Cot Houses' and Field Number 600 as 'Cot House' surrounded by four 'Gardens' an 'Orchard' and 'Curtelage'. This suggests that Hammerslake was a small hamlet rather than a farmstead at this time.
