Bridge Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed OS map and the Brandeston Tithe map. The farmstead is laid out with L-plan and parallel features with additonal detached elements. The farmhouse is detached and set away from the yard. The farmstead is set alongside a public road in an isolated position. The L-plan and some detached elements remain but the parallel ranges have been lost. This represents a partial loss (25%).
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.
