By 1857, during a period of economic expansion in Chagford, William Harvey had opened a butcher's shop outside the Three Crowns in the High Street. An image of it from the Thorn Collection is shown; the small square building sat on the forecourt, to the north-west of the front porch to the hotel. The structure was removed in the early 1950s, having served for a time as Splatt's Dairy.
