Type and Period (2)
Site of St Margaret's Town Farm, demolished in the 1950s; the footings of buildings are still apparent as is a cobbled track. Bricks from the St Cross brick works seem to have been used in the buildings. The farmstead lay on the parish boundary and there is a spread of Med and Pmed pottery close by in the neighbouring parish (SEC 036)(S1).
Air photographs show outlines of farm buildings and field boundaries on both sides of parish boundary (S2)(S3).
The plan of St Margeret's Town Farm and the position of several surrounding fields can be seen as cropmarks on aerial photographs, straddling the boundary between St Cross South Elmham parish and St Margeret South Elmham parish, centred on circa TM 307845 (S4-S6). The farm was noted during the ALSF NMP survey but not transcribed as it is clearly visible on the First and Second Edition Ordnance survey maps of circa 1884 and 1904 (S7, S8).
