Full description

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

Buildings marked at Westcot.


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

Westcott Farm marked. Comparison with the Tithe Map suggests that the farmstead has been rebuilt. A courtyard arrangement of farm buildings is shown with the house and garden to the south-west and a small pond close to the east end.


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

Modern mapping shows the farm to have expanded to the north. Much of the courtyard range shown on the 1880s-1890s map is still extant together with the small pond.
