SMANNELL PARISH COUNCIL

 

Woodhouse

One of the most ancient settlements in the parish consisting of 12 properties.  In early days it may have been a charcoal burning settlement with the name Woodhams (1810 Ordinance Survey) although the name of Woodhouse appears in the earlier 1759 map by Taylor 

 

It contains buildings as early as 1640, to more recent dwellings and is surrounded by open countryside.
