Full Description

King's Farm, Eye. 19th century farmstead and 18th century farmhouse. Loose courtyard two-sided plan formed by working agricultural buildings. The farmhouse set away from the yard. The farmstead is extant, the historic buildings have been surrounded by more modern farm buildings. Located within an isolated position (S1-6).

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.
