About Depden

Depden was recorded in Domesday as " Depdana"; John Speed's 1610 map shows it as "Debden".

The highest point in Suffolk, 128m (420ft) above sea level, can be found on the path between Elms Farm and the A143.

A Deserted Mediaeval Village has been found centred on St Mary's Church. All traces have now been ploughed out.

A Q Type bombing decoy was built in the south-west of the parish in 1939 (at TL 772 561) to deflect enemy bombing from RAF Stradishall. See Pastscape for more information.
