Full Description

Mill Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a regular L-plan with additional detached elements. The farmhouse is attached to the agricultural range. The farmstead sits alongside a public road in an isolated location. There has been a partial loss of working buildings. (S1-4)

18th C brick farmhouse with a range of outbuildings which were redeveloped in 1770. There is a timber framed three bay barn and a range of stabling, both covered in weatherboarding . Some of these boards are second hand and appear to have been re-used from an earlier building once present at this site; many of these are also covered in a red ochre pigment (S5).

Former watermill visible on the 1st edition OS map c.1880 (S6).

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.
