Stanchils Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a regular multi-yard with the farmhouse attached to the agricultural range. The farmstead sits alongside a private track in an isolated location. This farmstead survives intact with additional modern sheds on site. (S1-4)
Brick farmhouse with a tiled roof, built 1775. This house has an axial chimney and sash windows, as well as 19th C porch (S1). Early maps show that it was associated with a number of agricultural buildings, which were later demolished or incorporated into a model farm. One barn was demolished, but a timber-framed barn was incorporatedwithin a number of brick and flint ranges consturcted throughout the 19th C (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.
