Full description

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

Building depicted on the Tithe Map appears to be what preceded the construction of Cannon House; a strangely shaped building that curved around to the north.

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

The late 19th century historic map shows that this area of the Lower Square has been rebuilt, including Cannon House.
