Name:Building east of Cheston Cross


Building dates to at least the early-mid 19th century, based on cartographic evidence. Depicted on the Tithe Map as a long rectangular building, subdivided into two. There was a house with garden at the eastern end, and a barn with yard at the western end. At some point the western end has been converted into a further dwelling space and the boundary between the plots removed.

Full description

South West Heritage Trust, 1838-1848, Digitised Tithe Maps and Transcribed Apportionments (Cartographic). SDV359954.

Depicted on the 1840s Tithe Map as two adjoining rectangular buildings, aligned east-west, bordering the lane to the north. Each is set within its own plot. The western end is marked as 2004; 'barn and yard', while the eastern end is 2005; 'House and garden', both owned by South Brent Feoffees, occupied by Henry Langworthy.

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

Unchanged from the Tithe Map depiction.

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

Modern map shows the building, which still appears to be subdivided, although it's now set within a single plot and is probably one property. May be named 'Little Cheston'. At some point in the 20th century, the dividing boundary between plots has been removed.
