Full description

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

Tithe Map depicts Greator as a relatively busy farm, with a large rectangular dwelling at the south (possible longhouse?), with six associated buildings.

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

By the time of the later 19th century historic map, only the farmhouse and three other buildings remain.

Ordnance Survey, 2013, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV350786.

The modern mapping shows the remains of the farm. Most of the buildings lie in ruins, except the building on the west of the farm and the eastern part of the possible longhouse to the south of the farm.

Richards, A. F., 2016, Greator Farm and Gratnor Cottage mix-up (Personal Comment). SDV359598.

Due to a mix-up with the grid references (and presumably based on the similarity of the names), this has been linked to the Listed Building record for Gratnor. Historic England have been informed and the designation record has been re-linked to the correct record.
