Two 16th century cruck built barns survive in the small settlement at Drebley although both have been altered or partly rebuilt. The barn to the rear of Drebley Cottage has the characteristically steeply pitched roof of a heather thatched building although this has since been replaced with corrugated iron. Inside it has three massive full height open cruck trusses. The second barn is still partly heather thatched and also has three cruck trusses.


Public footpath to Howgill and Drebley leaves B6160 road between Bolton Bridge and Burnsall about 2 1/2 miles from Burnsall. Hamlet is about 1/3 mile down track. The corrugated iron roofed barns can be viewed from footpath. No public access.
