Little remains of these buildings and the modern day remains comprise the farmhouse and part of one of the farm buildings to the east.

Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

Pale Farm is depicted on the Tithe Map. Consists of three main buildings, with the farmhouse adjacent to the road. Two other buildings lie behind (to the east) of it.


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

Late 19th century historic map shows the farm and names it 'Pale', although a label also states 'White's Farm', just to the south-east of the farmstead. Some changes apparent since the Tithe Map depiction; farmhouse looks to have been extended and some alterations to the rear buildings have taken place.


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

Early 20th century historic map shows Pale Farm. No noticeable changes from the late 19th century historic map.


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

Farmstead included in survey. Visited on 05/05/1995.


Ordnance Survey, 2015, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV357601.

Modern map shows the remaining farmhouse and one structure to the east; this seems to be all that remains of the agricultural buildings that were shown on the historic maps.
