Full Description

Sawyer's 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 private track in an isolated location. Only the farmhouse remains. (S4-7)

A 14th C timber-framed and plastered kitchen with ovolo-mullioned windows and a smoke-blackened crownpost roof. An aisled crosswing was attached c.1600 at which time the kitchen was used as a dwelling (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.
