Full Description

Grange Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a regular full-plan with the farmhouse detached and set away from the yard. The farmstead sits alongside a public road in a hamlet location. This farmstead survives intact with conversion for residential use. (S2-5)

19th C farm complex, consisting of a range of flint and brick buildings, which include a barn, stables and a 6 bay cartlodge. These have now been converted (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.
