Full Description

Glebe Farmhouse is a timber-framed and rendered building which contains two principal phases of construction. The main, two-storied range to the right, when viewed from the front, dates from c. 1590-1620, while the low cross-wing to the left is an addition of the early-19th century. The latter incorporates numerous re-used timbers that may have been salvaged from an earlier structure on the site. An adjacent barn dates only from the 19th century (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.
