Summary

Full description

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

Dwelling is depicted on the Tithe Map, with a building adjoining to the north-west. This appears not to have been residential at the time of the Tithe Map.


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

The late 19th century historic map shows one large building at this location, without subdivisions.


Ordnance Survey, 2017, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV359962.

The modern mapping shows 1-3 Moorside, the centre dwelling of which is labelled as 'The Old Cottage', so presumably may be the remains of house shown on the Tithe Map, now with dwellings either side.
