Full description

Timms, S. C., 06/02/1980, Dwelling Houses (Worksheet). SDV342247.

Numbers 11/12/13a Buttgarden Street, Bideford (on west side of street).
Visited in October 1976 by P. Child. Letter states that houses have 18th/early 19th century exteriors but late 17th century internal features identified. Only 12 and 13a inspected. Stud and panel partition on ground floor and upper floor. Apparently in deal not oak, with deep moulded edges. Number 11 (not inspected) is sub-divided from number 12 and is probably late 17th century too.
Visited 31/01/1980. These houses have been comprehensively refurbished and it is doubtful whether the internal features have survived.

Department of National Heritage, 19/04/1993, Bideford, 74 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV338459.
