History Dry Drayton is a village and civil parish about 5 miles (8 km) northwest of Cambridge covering an area of 829 hectares (2,049 acres). The village area has been in human habitation since the iron age and now has a population of around 600. The current Parish of Dry Drayton is smaller than in earlier ages. In the second half of the 20th Century the northern part of the Parish became the new settlement, now parish, of Bar Hill. Today the area around the village comprises a small number of large and very efficient farms and the majority of residents work elsewhere. At Scotland Farm, one of the largest farms in the Parish, farm buildings have been converted into homes for a variety of small businesses, known collectively as Dry Drayton Industries.
