Was recorded by de la Rochefoucauld in 1784 (see N Scarfe, A Frenchman's Year in Suffolk, 1784, SRS 30, 1988, 215-7)(S3).
Later converted into brewery & malt kiln (Morse's Brewery, acquired by Morgan's Brewery Co Ltd in 1937.
In 1950 Windsor & Newton purchased the property and in 1955 demolished most of the surviving remnants and remains of the kiln.
