Full Description

Farm buildings in the grounds of Boundary Farm, including a 16th C timber-framed farmhouse with a 17th C crosswing. The 16th C core of the building is infilled with bricknogging, whilst the 17th C extension is plastered. The house has a purlin roof, ovolo-mullioned windows, 2 axial chimneys and 2 newell staircases.

Also present is a 16th C 4 bay timber-framed, weatherboarded and plastered barn, which originally had stables with lodgings above at one end; these were converted into a dairy in the 17th C. The barn has a clasped purlin roof and also some diamond mullioned windows above the dairy. Some extensions and alterations were carried out in the 19th and 20th C, including the addition of a porch and a loft above the barn.

In addition there is a 17th C 3 bay timber-framed and weatherboarded barn with stabling at one end; this structure also has a clasped-purlin roof. A number of alterations were carried out to this building in the 19th C.

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.
