Bramfield

 

Pictures of buildings mentioned in the “Suffolk” volume of “The Buildings of England” series by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner.


As noted on the index page this site does not usually do churches but Bramfield is a picturesque exception.  As Pevsner notes of St Andrew’s church on page 109 of the second edition:  “The Norman round tower is isolated.  E arch of c 1300 into a former nave.  The new church of nave and chancel is all Dec.  It is now thatched.”  It can be seen here:





He then mentions Almshouses (which I did not find in a brief stop) and Bramfield Hall which was not accessible except for the exterior of a crinkle-crankle wall.  Pevsner noted of the Hall on p110 that “In the garden a surprising number of undulating forcing-walls or crinkle-crankle walls.”



He also mentions Holly Farm, also not found on a brief stop.
