Nothing now visible - in area of nettles within mature coniferous plantation.
Derivation of name unknown - possibly used as gamekeepers lodge or, although no obvious evidence of a rabbit warren in Icklingham (sources not checked though) known, could possibly be the site of a Warrener's Lodge (not shown on Hodskinson 1783 map).

(Lodge Farm), Icklingham. 19th century farmstead and farmhouse. Regular courtyard multi-yard plan formed by working agricultural buildings. The farmhouse is set away from the yard. The site has been totally demolished. Located within an isolated position. Not present on the 1839 tithe map (S2-7).

August 2019. Breckland National Mapping Programme.
Earthwork banks, mounds and hollows, possibly relating to a former post medieval farm, can be seen on aerial photographs and visualised lidar data (S8-S10). The farm is mapped on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map as “Lodge Farm” (S11) and the earthworks may relate to the foundations of the farm and its buildings. A possible area of building material can be seen on the recent (2018) aerial photographs (S10) (centred at TL 8005 7464) which may relate to the former farm. It has previously been suggested that there are no remains of the farm visible (see above); however earthworks can be seen on the visualised lidar data which most likely still survive presently (2019) given the recent date (2015) of the survey.

Recorded as part of the Farmsteads in the Suffolk Countryside Project. This is a purely desk-based study and no site visits were undertaken. These records are not intended to be a definitive assessment of these buildings. Dating reflects their presence at a point in time on historic maps and there is potential for earlier origins to buildings and farmsteads. This project highlights a potential need for a more in depth field study of farmstead to gather more specific age data.
