Coddenham Hall, Church Road, Coddenham, IP6 9TY
Coddenham House, also known as ‘The Vicarage’, was built in 1770 for the Revd Nicholas Bacon, younger brother of John Bacon of Shrubland Hall. On his brother’s death in 1788, Nicholas Bacon inherited Shrubland Hall and in 1790 installed his wife’s brother-in-law, John Longe, as curate. Longe kept a detailed diary, which included references to the garden (published by Suffolk Records Society, 2008). The gardens boast some fine topiary, wisteria on the walls, a long herbaceous border, an orangery and extensive views over Coddenham village.
