Full description

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

Part of the road is still shown on the late 19th century historic map, although Lumborn Cottages (built in the 1860s) are also shown, so this section of road was clearly out of use by this time.

Waterhouse, R., 2017, The Tavistock Canal. Its History and Archaeology, 333, fig 10.30 (Monograph). SDV361789.
