Full Description

A historic building record was made of a barn at Garden House Farm in advance of conversion. The flint barn is an usually small 'Napoleonic' example reflecting the agricultural boom in Suffolk in the early 19th century, and contains an intact gault brick threshing floor. However the barn has lost its original roof, and the timber framed stable to the N has also been extensively altered, so do not meet the criteria for listing (S1).

Garden House Farm, Drinkstone. 19th century farmstead and farmhouse with converted buildings. Loose courtyard two-sided plan formed by working agricultural buildings. The farmhouse is set away from the yard. Partial loss (less than 50%) of the traditional farm buildings. Located within an isolated position (S2-7).

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.
