HER Number:MDV121149
Name:The Barton, Belstone


Depicted on the Tithe Map, this house was used as the Rectory for a time from 1883, when the Revernd Buckworth moved from the Old Rectory, half a mile outside the village. The late 19th and early 20th century historic map depictions don't match, so there may have been some rebuilding around this time.

Full description

South West Heritage Trust, 1838-1848, Digitised Tithe Maps and Transcribed Apportionments, Belstone 198 (Cartographic). SDV359954.

The building is depicted on the Tithe Map; plot 198: 'House and Yard (Barton)'. House is a large rectangular structure, aligned roughly south-west by north-east.

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

The later 19th century historic map doesn't match the Tithe Map for this building; appears to have been some change. The adjoining building to the south appears unchanged, but this structure is shown with a double line enclosing a slightly shorter, almost square area.

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

Early 20th century historic map shows the structure more as it had been shown on the Tithe Map. Nearby 'Smithy' label may suggest a new use for part of the building.

Walpole, C., 2017, A Village Rector Remembers. Belstone between 1906 and 1927 Part Three, 26 (Article in Serial). SDV360890.

Reverend Milner recalls a previous incumbent (Reverend Buckworth) moved to The Barton in 1883, as the Old Rectory was unsuitable.

Ordnance Survey, 2018, MasterMap 2018 (Cartographic). SDV360652.

'The Barton' is depicted on the modern mapping.
