Moneypot Farm lies 800m north of Redgrave village, and is reached by Moneypot Lane. The farmhouse is a grade II-listed timber-framed and rendered structure c.1600 50m east of the lane and reached by a track which is flanked by the outbuilding surveyed in this report. At the time of the Redgrave tithe survey in 1846 the farm was a tenanted holding of 13.5 acres. The outbuilding consists of a pantiled, single-storied mid-19th century shed with walls of clay-lump on a flint-rubble plinth, and an adjoining similar structure with walls of boarded studwork. Both sheds are divided into a pair of approximately equal compartments entered by four south-facing doors and appear to have formed a range of loose boxes - presumably for cattle. Neither structure was shown on the tithe map, but both were present by 1886. The boarded shed probably post-dates its neighbour by a decade or two, but was substantially rebuilt in the 20th century and is now of little historic value - although future conversion may reveal archaeological evidence of the earlier barn. The clay-lump shed, in contrast, has lost its original roof structure but is otherwise unusually well preserved and represents a good example of an increasingly rare type. Its walls are almost entirely intact and its original layout remains unaltered. The building is not, however, of sufficient age or rarity to meet the strict English Heritage criteria for listing in its own right, particularly as it already enjoys some protection due to the proximity of the listed farmhouse.
