Full description

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

Yellands is depicted on the 1840s Tithe Map. 775 on the Chagford apportionment; 'Courtlage and Lane', owned and occupied by William Clampitt. Farm layout consists of a large, rectangular dwelling, aligned roughly north-south, located on the western side of the farm, with two smaller rectangular farm buildings (also north-south aligned) to the east and a further building to the north of the farmhouse. This is a narrow, roughly L-shaped range, aligned east-west.

Yellands is depicted on the late 19th century historic map. Appears unchanged from the Tithe Map, although the ash house is now depicted.

Largely similar to the previous historic map depictions, although the L-shaped building to the north of the farmhouse has been altered; now has a central gap in the structure.
