Full description

Fisher, J., 1999, East Devon Conservation Area Appraisals: Sidbury, 4, 7 (Report - non-specific). SDV346859.

At the centre of the village, and attractively grouped in several short terraces mostly facing the church, are a number of whitewashed cottages, some thatched. Stone and slate provides an occasional pleasing contrast. Other details: Maps, photograph.

Goodwin, N., 2008, Watching Brief at Grey Cottage, 38 Church Street, Sidbury (Report - Watching Brief). SDV344636.

No evidence for activity prior to the 19th century was observed during a watching brief on groundworks for an extension to the rear of No. 38. Rubble and building debris may indicated the site of a former building but no foundations survived to confirm this.
