Full description

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

Depicted on the Tithe Map, Wooda is 432 on the Throwleigh apportionment; 'House and garden', with a number of associated plots. The layout of the farm is simple, with an inverted T-shaped building to the north, containing the farmhouse and presumably some additional space for agricultural buildings, and one small separate building to the south.

Late 19th century historic map shows the layout to largely match the Tithe Map, but with three separate small buildings to the south / south-east of the farmhouse.
