Full description

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

Lakemoor is depicted on the Tithe Map; 218 on the Buckfastleigh apportionment ('House and Yard'). The map shows two buildings, with the farmhouse to the north; a larger rectangular building. To the north of this is a mowplot (220), while a garden (219) lies to the south-west side of the farmhouse, with an orchard (174) to left of the entrance to the farm.

The late 19th century historic map shows the farmhouse has been extended; is now an L-shaped building. The other structure shown on the Tithe Map is no longer shown.


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

The farmhouse at Lakemoor has been reduced in size at the western end. Otherwise, the map is similar to the late 19th century historic map.
