Full Description

The site is shown as a clear plot on the Ordnance Survey 1 inch drawing of 1804, although this may be due to the scale of the map involved. [1] The Tithe Map for Lynton and Lynmouth depicts a pair of gate piers flanking the routeway to the main complex of buildings at Combe Park, from where it exits Combepark Wood and crosses the parkland. These are situated at SS 7377 4763. [2] The gate piers are no longer depicted on later maps to which the HER has access, although they may still have been extant. The routeway shown on the Tithe Map still appears to be in use. [3-5]
