A historic building record was made of farm buildings at Warren Hill Farm in advance of conversion. The timber-framed barn consists of a combined threshing barn and stable of early-mid 19th century date, which probably relates to the expansion of the farm following enclosure of local heathland at Warren Hills in c.1812. The barn incorporates some earlier fabric from a 17th century predecessor, which appears to have flanked a courtyard in front of the farmhouse. The barn has lost its original roof and have been much altered in the 20th century, although the adjoining shelter shed retains it original external render, but does not meet the criteria for listing (S1).
Warrenhill Farm, Brome. 19th century farmstead and farmhouse. Regular courtyard multi-yard plan with additional detached buildings formed by working agricultural buildings. The farmhouse is set away from the yard. Significant loss (over 50%) of the traditional farm buildings. Located within an isolated position. There are two main yard areas, one close to the house in a dispersed arrangement and the other further away with a regular arrangement. On the 1930 tithe map the two yards are owned by the same person but occupied separately (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.
