Full Description

Home Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a parallel plan with additional detached elements. The farmhouse is detached and set away from the yard. The farmstead sits alongside a Public Bridleway in an isolated location. The Farmhouse is away from the green edge. The Farmstead abuts the green. According to the owner (c.2021) no historic farm buildings have been replaced by modern sheds, the buildings have been preserved in the 20th and 21st centuries without conversion, (S1-S4, S6)

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.
