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.

Visual inspection of the structure was carried out to inform an application for planning permission. The structure consists of a timber-framed single storey stand-alone barn. The barn is split into seven bays which are denoted by cross tie beams at eaves level spanning the width of the building. The roof is pitched cement base profiled sheeting. The barn is generally in good condition (S1).
