Full description

Watts, S., 19/06/12, House at Aller on Donn's Map (Personal Comment). SDV349539.

Comparison between Donn's map and more modern mapping suggests that the road shown running north-south on Donn's map between Newton Abbot and Kingskerswell is Kingskerswell Road. The house at Aller is, therefore, likely to be the manor house situated to the south-east of the quarry and now the site of the Barn Owl Inn.

House marked on Donn's map of 1765. Subsequently quarried away.
