Full description

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

Large rectangular house with ranges/wings extending north at either end. To the north are two further buildings around a broadly rectangular yard. Two smaller buildings are shown to the west.

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

'Cross' marked. Comparison with the Tithe Map shows the farm buildings at the northern end of the yard to have been possibly altered/rebuilt, although the apparent 'squaring up' could be due to the way the buildings were depicted on the Tithe Map. Additional buildings are also shown attached to these buildings.

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

Most of the historic buildings appear still extant.
