Full description

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

Close group of buildings depicted, all aligned broadly north-west to south-east. To the south-east is another group of buildings including a horse engine house.

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

Kingston marked. Comparison with the Tithe Map shows the farmstead to have been rebuilt, with ranges of buildings on either side of an entranceway leading to a large courtyard with buildings around all four sides and another building and pump in the centre.
The site of the buildings to the south-east with the horse engine house all appears to have been rebuilt and is called Lower Kingston

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

Most of the buildings shown on the 1880s-1890s map appear to be still extant, although that in the centre of the yard has been covered over/replaced by a larger building.
