Farmstead is depicted on the Tithe Map; 'Redicleave Estate' on the apportionment for Dean Prior; (515-). House and courtyard, gardens etc. The map depiction shows the old mansion house to the south of the farm, with another three farm buildings arranged around three sides of a rectangular yard.

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

The late 19th century historic map for Reddacleave is largely similar to the Tithe Map, although one of the buildings shown on it (north-west of the mansion house) is now gone, or falling into decay.

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

The early 20th century historic map shows the mansion to be uninhabited and the remaining farm buildings consist primarily of an L-shaped range at the northern corner of the yard.

Reddacleave farm included on list. No further information provided.

The modern map shows the L-shaped range of buildings still exist, but little else. Some small structure is shown at the south-western end of the mansion house.
