Full description

Unknown, Unnamed source (Unattributed Sites and Monuments Register Entry). SDV230562.

Brisworthy farm. Mentioned in 12th century records.


South West Heritage Trust, 1838-1848, Digitised Tithe Maps and Transcribed Apportionments (Cartographic). SDV359954.

Farmhouse is depicted on the Tithe Map at Brisworthy; 821 on the Meavy apportionment 'Dwelling house, outhouses', owned by Sir Ralph Lopes Baronet, occupied by Richard and Mark Northmore. Estate marked as Brisworthy alias Brittisworthy, and the farm is marked as the latter on the map, although the extra letters have been scratched out.
The dwelling is a long rectangle shape, aligned roughly north-south, with outshot or wing on the eastern side.


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

The building certainly appears altered on the later 19th century historic map, presumably since the renovations. Has a porch shown on the front (western) side and outshot/wing on the eastern side may have been altered.


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

Unchanged from the previous map depiction.


Dartmoor National Park Authority, 1993 - 1997, Dartmoor National Park Authority Farmstead Survey 1993-1997 (Report - Survey). SDV344544.

Visited 09/01/1995. Farmhouse is probably early 19th century, renovated in 1863; has this date in the porch above the door.


Ordnance Survey, 2018, MasterMap 2018 (Cartographic). SDV360652.

Shown as a plain rectangle on the modern mapping, which for some reason has simplified its depiction, excluding the rear wing and porch, which can still be seen on aerial images of the house.
