Full Description

A building is depicted within Plot 1414 to the east of Valley of the Rocks on the Lynton Tithe Map. Plot 1414 is recorded as 'Gardens' within the accompanying Tithe Apportionment. [1] A slightly larger building is depicted within this location on the First and Second Edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey maps. [2-3] A larger building is depicted within this location on the Ordnance Survey MasterMap where it is labelled as 'Midhills'. It is not possible to determine from the cartographic evidence alone whether this larger building has replaced, or is an extension to, the building depicted on the earlier maps. [4]
