Full description

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

The Tithe Map for Throwleigh shows this holding as an L-shaped building(s), with two narrow out buildings on the north-western side. The apportionment records it as 'garden and house' (705).

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

The late 19th century historic map shows the layout of the building to be largely unchanged, although there is no sign of any structures adjoining on the northern side now.

White, P., 2013, Previously Unsurveyed Dartmoor Historic Farmsteads (Un-published). SDV352501.

Included on list. No further detail provided.

Ordnance Survey, 2015, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV357601.

The modern map shows the structure to be the same as the late 19th century historic map. Now appears to be two separate dwellings.
