Full Description

Green 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 detached and set away from the yard. The farmstead sits alongside a public road in an isolated location. The farmstead survives intact with conversion for residential use.

16th C timber-framed farmhouse with a 3 cell cross-passage entrance olan. It was damaged by fire in 1993, which required the roof to be reconstructed as well as part of the first floor. A number of alterations as well as an extension were carried out to the house during the 18th/19th C. A 16th C 3 bay timber-framed threshing barn with an integral stable and hayloft stands in the grounds of the farmhouse. A backhouse and neathouse also once stood on the site but have since been demolished (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.
