Full description

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

Tithe Map depicts this building; plot 87 'cottages' on apportionment. The map shows four large main buildings making up the block of buildings in the centre of the square; these were mostly later subdivided, except number 5.

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

The late 19th century historic map shows that most of the buildings in the Square have been subdivided, and this property is likely to have been split into two.

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

Interestingly, the early 20th century historic map shows this premises as one large building again; matching the Tithe Map depiction.

Rice, I., 2002, The Book of Chagford. A Town Apart, 27 (Monograph). SDV356605.

Image of North Street from 1963 shows Rowe's Bakery (later Miller's).

Google, 2023, Google Streetview (Website). SDV365229.

(Image dates: 2009, 2011, 2016 and 2021) Images of the North Street side of the building shows it is in use as a bakery at present; 'Thomas' Bakery'. The adjoining part of the building on the eastern side has had a number of businesses over the years; 'Casa Magnolia', 'Boo's' and the 'Pepperpot Gallery'. Adjoining property which is smaller and set back to the south-east (Number 9a on MasterMap) hosts a café.

Ordnance Survey, 2023, Mastermap 2023 (Cartographic). SDV365227.

The modern mapping more closely matches the late 19th century historic mapping and shows two buildings occupying this plot; numbers 11 and 9a.
