Full Description

Yoxford Farm is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a regular E-plan with additional detached elements. The farmhouse is detached and set away from the yard. The farmstead sits along side a private track in an isolated location. There has been a significant loss of working buildings with the remaining converted for residential use.

19th C granary with a cartlodge beneath. The building results from the extension and remodelling of an early-Victorian predecessor. These earlier remains include area of flintwork secured by brick piers, which is an unusual feature.This early fabric adds to the historic interest of this structure. Early maps show that there was once a lean-to structure attached to the cartlodge, although this has since been demolished. Remains of grain bins also survive (S1)

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.
