Ipswich Building Preservation Trust: Trinity Lodge, Back Hamlet. This house was uninhabitable when purchased by the Trust in June 2002, after a feasibility study to investigate the potential for refurbishment and conversion. The neglected exterior conceals an interesting history. The core of Trinity Lodge dates back to the 16th century when it started life as a farmhouse, set in open country. It was extended in the 18th and 19th centuries. Building work by a third party commenced in July 2003 and restored historic features and created two desirable houses.
