Full description

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

Two adjoining enclosures shown on 19th century Tithe Map. The western rectangular enclosure has a T shaped building on the north side of the northern boundary. In the angle between the two enclosures is a small irregular shaped feature which may indicate a pond. The Apportionment for land owned by the Duke of Somerset lists Field Number 1859 as 'Cottage and Garden with right of depasture on Haytor Down'. Field Number 1860 is listed as 'Garden'.

Enclosure - 19th century cottage and garden.


Newman, P., 2002, Haytor Down, Ilsington, Devon, 25 (Report - Survey). SDV346395.

On the western end of Haytor Quarries are two well preserved enclosures constructed from granite. There are the slight remains of a building in one corner and a second external building at the southern end. One building was still occupied in 1885. An earthwork feature sited near the junction of the two enclosures formerlt described as a hut circle is almost certainly military and of late 19th century date.
