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

Pevsner’s entries for Elmswell (Pages 198/9) are the Church, the Almshouses and a Romano-British kiln.  Only the Almshouses are shown here.  Of them, Pevsner says “Founded by Sir Robert Gardener.  Dated 1614.  Red brick, one-storeyed, with a steep central gable.  Five doorways, four groups of chimneys.  The windows are of  two lights with an architrave over.”
