Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

South Creaber is depicted on the Tithe Map; 267 on the apportionment; 'House, Bartons and C.' The layout of the farm consists of the farmhouse, aligned east-west at the south side of the yard, with two additional buildings. One; an L-shaped building lies to the north of the farmhouse and the other, rectangular, building lies to the east.


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

The late 19th century historic map shows the layout at South Creaber to be much the same as the Tithe Map; only difference is a small extension shown on the south side of the farmhouse.


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

The early 20th century historic map shows the eastern building to have gone and the farmhouse is now joined to the L-shaped range. No sign of the southern extension on the farmhouse.
