Depden

Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Introduction

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.
