Full description

Fisher, J., 1999, East Devon Conservation Area Appraisals: Whimple, 3-6 (Report - non-specific). SDV347093.

The Whimple Conservation Area mainly comprises the nucleus set around The Square and Church Road to the south. The Square and the several short rows of cottages in streets adjoining constitute one of the most pleasing environments to be found in any East Devon village, with buiildings on a harmonious scale with many retaining at least some original features. Nos 1-3 The Square are plain 18th or early 19th century cottages, with largely unspoilt frontages retaining significant period detail, including original shop fronts. No 1 includes an unusual shopfront on the east elevation, where fascia brackets appear to have been inverted. Other details: Maps, photographs.
