Full description

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

'Moor' is depicted on the Tithe Map; 370 on the Cornwood Apportionment. Marked as 'House, yard and offices', owned by Sir John Leman Rogers, Baronet, as part of the Moor estate; occupied by Henry Mudge. Area of garden (372) to the north-west of the house. The map shows four structures; the dwelling on the north-west side of the yard, with range of farm buildings to the south-east, bordering the east and part of the southern sides of the yard. Another, small, rectangular building (aligned roughly east-west) borders the south side of the yard and a structure is shown to the south-west of the dwelling, which appears to be the privy.


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

The late 19th century historic map shows some changes to the structures at the farm; the dwelling has been filled in to enlarge it and some additions appear to have been added to the farm buildings.


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

Unchanged from the late 19th century historic map depiction.

Farmstead included in survey. Visited during December 1991.
The two listed buildings are described. Extract from Ordnance Survey mapping used in survey still shows the old rectangular range of farm buildings at the south-western side of the yard, although the photographs show the large barn type structure that has replaced this range is in existence at this time. Privy/ash house also noted.


Ordnance Survey, 2018, MasterMap 2018 (Cartographic). SDV360652.

The modern map shows the layout of the farm to have been largely retained, although a large modern structure (post 1940s) has replaced the building at the south-western side of the yard.
