Full description

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

Wesstern Farm depicted comprising the dwelling house (shown in red) in the north-west corner of the complex with a building extending south from its western end. To the east of the house is an L-shaped range of buildings around the north and east sides of a yard with another building forming the south side of the yard. A rectangular building extends to the north from the northern side of the L-shaped range. To the south is a large pond with a small building on its east side. Two orchards are also shown.

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

Western marked. Comparison with the Tithe Map shows the plan of the farmstead to have changed little.

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

The modern farm has expanded to the east but the buildings recorded on the 1880s-1890s map are still largely extant.
