4/35 Suttons Farmhouse

II


Farmhouse, late C16. 2 storeys, 3-cell plan with additional cell behind
parlour. Timber-framed and rendered. Plain-tiled roof with axial and gable
chimneys of red brick. Late C18 3-light casements. C20 boarded entrance door.
An original staircase of triangular blocks pegged to bearers, within what would
otherwise be a cross-passage. Exposed timber-framing with ovolo-moulded 1st
floor beams. An original smoke-curing chamber at attic level, associated with
the axial chimney; so far a unique example in Suffolk. For details, see "A
smoke-curing chamber at Brockley" by John McCann, Proceedings of Suff. Inst.
Arch., 1982. In the will of John Sutton, 1696, the farm was vested in
trustees, and income to be used for maintaining 6 poor religious men and 6 poor
boys in Bury St. Edmunds.
