About Denston

Denston is a compact village on a tributary of the River Glem, recorded in Domesday as "Danerdestuna". Historically may also be called Denardiston and it appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Den?ton".

The Plumbers Arms was once a popular stopping point for horse drawn traffic between Bury and Haverhill. A barrow near this pub is said to be the burial place of soldiers killed in a nearby battle during the Civil War.

The Wickhambrook Red House has sometimes been erroneously recorded as being in Denston.
