Dry Drayton History - Village Memories In Writing


• Village Memories   (Sid Martin and others)

We are most grateful to Chris and Gill Turner for putting together a series of Memories of Dry Drayton from some past residents. These are primarily the memories of Sid Martin, with additional contributions from Joy Dunn, Folly Rook, John Hacker and Dryton. Most of Sid’s memories were typed for him by his niece, Gillian Turner, nee Bilton. Gill’s husband, Chris, has compiled these memories from her files and from copies of Dry Drayton Village Newsletters held in the Cambridgeshire Collection at the Central Library, Cambridge. Use this link to download Memories of Dry Drayton (40 page 1Mb pdf).


• Village Memories (Cherry John Hacker)

Dry Drayton Remembered is a personal history of Dry Drayton by life-long resident Cherry John Hacker (1924-2005) with illustrations by Douglas Shapley. We are most grateful to John's daughters, Susan and Judith, for permission to make this publication available here.
