Full description

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

The first depiction of Combehead Farm is on the late 19th century historic map; the building shown on the Tithe Map to the east is gone and a new farmstead has been depicted to the west, with a farmhouse to the south-east side of the main range of farm buildings.


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

Farm is unchanged from the late 19th century historic map depiction.


Ordnance Survey, 2016, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV359352.

The modern map suggests that a number of the farm buildings have been converted into dwellings since the early 20th century. The original farmhouse looks also to have substantially altered.
