Drydale Bottom is a farmstead visible on the 1st Ed Os map. The farmstead is laid out in a series of regular L-plans with additional detached elements. The farmhouse is detached and set away from the yards. The farmstead sits alongside a private track in an isolated location. This farmstead has undergone total change with all working and residential buildigns replaced by modern equivlents.
Recorded as part of the Farmsteads in the Suffolk Countryside Project. This is a purely desk-based study and no site visits were undertaken. These records are not intended to be a definitive assessment of these buildings. Dating reflects their presence at a point in time on historic maps and there is potential for earlier origins to buildings and farmsteads. This project highlights a potential need for a more in depth field study of farmstead to gather more specific age data.
