HER Number:MDV122917
Name:Demolished building south-west of Mary Tavy church


No long extant; a building here pre-dated the row of cottages (MDV122915). Dating to at least the early – mid 19th century, based on cartographic evidence. Depicted on the 1840s Tithe Map and occupied by paupers, this building appears to have replaced by a row of cottages by the later 19th century.
