HER Number:MDV113226
Name:Lower Beara Farm, South Brent

Summary

Farmstead dates to at least the early-mid 19th century, based on cartographic evidence, but may be earlier. Depicted on the Tithe Map, the farmhouse was demolished in the 1950s, so the only remaining building is that to the south of the road.

Full description

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

Lower Beara is depicted on the Tithe Map; 2528 on the South Brent apportionment; 'Dwelling house, other buildings and c.' The map shows the farmhouse on the northern side of the road, with an associated building adjoining on the eastern end and another opposite to the south of the road.


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

The late 19th century historic map depiction of Lower Beara is much the same as the Tithe Map, although it is not clear whether the building adjoining the farm is still in existence.


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

Same as the late 19th century historic map.

Lower Beara included on list. No further information provided.


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

Modern map shows the farm now surrounded with a number of modern properties. The farmhouse is long gone and a late 20th century modern store / shed has been built over the site of the farmhouse. It appears that the building south of the road has been used as a dwelling following the demolition of the old farmhouse.
