Rookery Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed OS map and the Bruisyard Tithe map. The farmstead is laid out in a full regular courtyard plan. The farmhouse is detached and set away from the farm. The farmstead is located to either side of a public road in a loose farmstead cluster. The farmstead has survived largely intact with just some minor loss to the full courtyard.
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.
