HER Number:MDV121157
Name:Row of cottages south-east of Church, Belstone


These buildings date to the early 20th century, based on cartographic evidence. Partially depicted on the 1905-7 historic map, they appear to have been built piecemeal; the terrace as it appears now (2018) is only shown complete by the 1930s historic map.

The Reverend Herbert Wilson Milner lived in Green Vale for 3 and a half years when he and his wife first arrived in the village. He discusses in his 1927 writings about its convenience; he had some steps made on each side of the wall and could walk into church without going through the village at all. The land on which the houses are built (the south border of the churchyard), used to be known as the Parish Garden, and were let for 10/- per year by the Parish, although later sold for houses

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

'Green Lodge', 'Moor Cottage', 'Green Vale' and 'Moor Hall' are depicted on the modern mapping.
