Take a look at the valley (and a little beyond) as it was around 1840

If you live in a house which is over 150 years old, you might like to look at the following links to find out about your house in 1840 which is when the tithe maps were drawn up.

First find your plot on the tithe map and then look at the apportionment table to find out who owned that plot and lots of other interesting facts.

All this work has been done by AONB. Parishscapes is a three year project (2007-2010), delivered by the East Devon AONB Partnership on behalf of and with the support of East Devon District Council, Natural England and Heritage Lottery Fund.

If you find out anything interesting, do share it with us – happy hunting.
