Full description

1840, Tithe Map (Cartographic). SDV339770.

Although this farmstead is not shown on the digitised Tithe Map, or the scanned sections of the Tithe Map stored at Dartmoor, it does appear on the map held by the Ugborough History Group, and an extract can be viewed online. The layout appears much the same as the later 19th century historic map.


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

Shute is shown on the late 19th century historic map. A collection of farm buildings lie to the north of the dwelling; a rectangular farmhouse, aligned south-west by north-east.
