Full description

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

The Tithe Map depicts farm named as 'Higher Heale'; 1083 on the apportionment. Map shows rectangular house, aligned roughly south-east by north-west, with large east-west aligned farm building at the northern end. Four other smaller farm building scattered around farm to west, north and east.


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

The later 19th century historic map shows major changes to the farm. As well as the alterations to the house, the farm building to the north has a semi-circular horse engine house now added to the north side, while a large new range of buildings now borders the farm on the west and northern sides. Not clear whether any of the individual structures shown on the Tithe Map have been incorporated in this narrow range, or not. Building to the east of the house no longer shown.
