Full description

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

'Cudliptown' is depicted on the Tithe Map; 249 on the Tavistock apportionment: 'yard and house'. Farmhouse lies to the east of the yard; L-shaped building.

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

Farmhouse appears largely unchanged on the late 19th century depiction of the farm.

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

The early 20th century map shows the new farmhouse at the north-west end of the farm and the original farmhouse has been altered; the north-eastern part of the L-shape is now gone and the building is rectangular. This may be linked to its change of use to am agricultural building.

Edgecombe at Cudlipptown. Former house built of stone rubble with granite dressings in the 16th century. It was of two storeys and probably of one cell only, perhaps originally with byre adjoining. The original north end wall has gone, probably destroyed when the house was later extended in this direction. A cross beam is slotted for joists and the irregular spacing suggests that the stairs may have been fixed to the back of the beam. Doorway has two-centred head.
