Cotton’s Farm, Dry Drayton

History of Cotton's Farm

Cotton’s farm, OS 1886

The original building here seems to have dated from C17th and partially rebuilt in brick in the next century. The magnificent timber and thatched barn and farm buildings were already derelict in the 1930s. The whole site was redeveloped in the 1970s.
