Welcome to Depden

Depden is a small rural community with a population of only about 200, situated at the highest point in Suffolk about seven miles south-west from Bury St Edmunds along the A143. 

The village is dispersed over a wide area but many of the houses surround the large open green, which is one of the largest in the country at over 40 acres.

Depden has a long history and in the Doomsday book, Depden is referred to as Depdana which has the apparently incongruous meaning of "Deep Valley."

The parish church of St Mary dates back at least to the 12th century and is unusual in that it is about half a mile away from the rest of the village and can only be reached on foot.
