Baxter's Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed OS map and the Burgh Tithe map. The farmstead is laid out in a regular courtyard E-plan with an additional working building extening from the lower arm of the E-plan. The farmhouse is detached and set away from the yards. The farmstead is set alongside a public road in a loose farmstead cluster. The farmhouse survives while the the E-plan has been reduced to a U-plan. The farmstead still operates as a farm.
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.
