Full description

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

The tithe map, indicates that as suggested by Pye (2007), the property was combined from two to one before 1842. Although, the structure seem like it had undergone some structural changes between 1842 and the 1880s. The tithe map seems to indicate a smaller property, with less expansion to the northwest than the 1880s mapping.

Pye, A., 2007, 87 Church Road, Alphington: Observations during External Alterations and Repairs (Report - Survey). SDV362832.

Observations were undertaken during the refurbishment and replacement of windows and the re-rendering of the front elevation by the Exeter City Council Archaeology Officer.

Earliest stonework is of good quality, and its constituents indicate an 18th century or quite possibly earlier date, suggesting remnants of an earlier post medieval building or buildings within a later, mostly 19th century pair of buildings. More clarification only likely as result of internal inspection during any future alterations.

Originally a pair of buildings that seem, at least from the map evidence to have been combined into one property before 1889, and perhaps before 1842.
