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.

At Gedgrave was a chapel dedicated to the Blessed Mary and St George (S4)
About six skeletons were found buried without grave goods during laying of foundations for a new barn near the presumed site of Gedgrave Chapel (S5).
