Full description

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

House is depicted on the Tithe Map; 570 on the Mary Tavy apportionment 'House and garden: Marytavy Village'. House is a rectangle shape, aligned north-west by south-east.


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

The late 19th century historic map shows the house is unchanged since the Tithe Map depiction. Presumably it was associated with Wheal Friendship mine, perhaps as workers accommodation. It is located just adjacent to the leat running through the mine and near to the calciners.
