The first Brethren assembly in Suffolk County, England was constructed in 1841 in a location known then as Broacher's Green (now Broadgrass Green) near Woolpit, at what is now White Elm Road. It was referenced as "Christian Fellowship", as well as "Meeting Room". It appears to have closed after 1993. The property contains a graveyard.
