Full description

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

Dwelling (not clear if this is still a farmhouse at this time) depicted with a number of other buildings behind (west). Plot 30 on the apportionment is listed as part of 'Drakes Down'; 'Stable, yard and courtyard'. Map is quite damaged and unclear in places, but there also appears to be a structure with a horse-engine house on the rear to the south-west of the farmhouse building.

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

By the time of the late 19th century historic map, the only buildings remaining are the cottages converted from the old farmhouse.
