Full Description

Street Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a regular E-plan. The farmhouse is detached and set side on to the yard. The farmstead sits alongside a public road in a village location. There has been a significant loss of working buildings with a large modern shed on site. (S2-5)

Two 19th century farm buildings that formed part of a continuous complex of outbuildings. The 1886 OS map shows a range of outbuildings adjacent to the house. Building one has two walls constructed from brick and two which are timber framed, with an earth floor and a purlin style roof. Building two was damaged by fire and has been re-constructed from a mix of older brickwork and re-used timbers alongside modern materials. This structure has a new timber roof covered with pantiles as well as a concrete floor (S1).

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.
