Type and Period (6)
Mid-19th C timber-framed and weatherboarded barn with lean-to stable and cattle shed. Also 2 brick covered sheds in yard - one known to have functioned as a dairy until animal husbandry was abandoned in the 20th C.
The barn has 6 bays, a high brick plinth, clasped-purlin roof with unusually long jowls to the upper sections of the principle rafters. Its low pitch suggests it was designed for pantiles, though the present roof is modern.
Mendlesham Manor and Mendlesham Barn (Park Farm), Mendlesham. 19th century farmstead and 16th century farmhouse. Regular courtyard U-shaped plan formed by working agricultural buildings. Farmhouse is set away from the yard. Partial loss (less than 50%) of the traditional farm buildings. Located within an isolated position.
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.
