Full description

Possible site of Broomhill Warren Lodge, marked on 1791 map of Cadogan estate (Suffolk Record Office, Bury St. Edmunds, Ref. M550/3).
A more likely site may be Bromehill Farm, formerly Bromehill Priory (NHER 5627) although even taking into account cartographic anomalies, the above grid reference would appear to be more accurate. Site not visited, now under coniferous plantation.
