Full Description

Visible on the 1st Ed OS map and the Bramfield Tithe map is an unnamed farmstead which sits alongside Thorington Road. The farmstead is laid out in a regular L-plan with a detached farmhouse set away from the yard. There are also two additional detached elements.

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.
