This has been compiled from aerial photographs of the Common (see below).
Therefore
a) the copyright to it belongs to Jim Batten and Devon County Council.
b) it is liable to be distorted because of the curvature of the Earth and because of the angle of view of hills and valleys.
c) it only covers a part of the Common, since I didn't know how long map-making took, even given an aerial photograph to trace.
