Full description

South West Heritage Trust, 1838-1848, Digitised Tithe Maps and Transcribed Apportionments, Plot 81 (Cartographic). SDV359954.

Depicted on the 1840s Tithe Map; part of a single huge dwelling fronting onto the road here (plot 81) with rear extension. No separate divisions shown but apportionment records 'Cottages and Gardens' with a range of owners (6) and occupiers (7) so it appears to have been separate dwellings despite the map depiction.

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

The late 19th century historic map shows two tiny separate buildings here, in the tiny plot accommodating the curve of the road.

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

Similar to the late 19th century historic map depiction although a single building is now shown.

Google, 2023, Google Streetview (Website). SDV365229.

(Image date: May 2009) End terrace house with door to left and row of three windows in a line to the right. Two and half storeys with tiled roof and brick chimney. Pitch of the roof does not match adjoining house (number 36) and may have been raised; perhaps when dormer added (if this is not an original feature). Windows in ground and first floor are 16-pane sashes, dormer window is 12-pane sash and appears contemporary with the other windows.

Ordnance Survey, 2023, Mastermap 2023 (Cartographic). SDV365227.

Number 38 Lower Street is depicted on the modern mapping. The layout appears largely similar to the historic map depictions; this house is irregularly shaped, fitting the corner plot and curve of the road.
