Full Description

Late 16th/early 17th century farmhouse. Timber framed and roughcast-rendered with a roof of concrete pantiles. 2 storeys; the former attic is now disused. The building is in 3-cell form. The ground floor has a mid 20th century flat-roofed addition set forward: large windows and 2 entrance doors. 19th century casements to first floor. Internal stack with rendered shaft; external stack against right gable end. Complete plain studding exposed in first floor rooms, the bracing on the outside face of the studs. The main posts are heavily jowled. In the rear wall are 2 blocked windows with diamond mullions. Both hall and parlour have axial bridging beams and chamfered joists with ogee stops. There are plain joists at service end. Where the mid 20th century addition adjoins the original building the front wall has been removed. Newel stairs up to the second floor but the attic flight have been removed (S1).

2010: A Historic Building Record was produced to supplement an altered conversion scheme that already had planning permission. The report looked at the barn and adjacent building at Kiln Farm. The barn dates to the late 18th or early 19th century and is a timber-framed tructure on an English Bond brick plinth. The barns consists of four bays of different sizes which is unusual. The roof tiles are a modern replacement of the original weatherboarded roof and the original barn doors were lost some time ago. The adjacent western building is a later brick and corrugated iron addition. The structure of this building implies that there was another standing building to the west which is no longer there (S2).

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.
