The village of Withersdale Street is located within the rural parish of Mendham, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, in the Waveney Valley. The village is predominantly a ribbon development, along the B1123, from Harleston to Halesworth. To the west of the village lies Mendham Priory, whilst to the east, the Red House, a later Georgian red brick building also mentioned by Pevsner, faces towards the new village hall and overlooks the playing field.
In November 2009, the new village hall was opened by Rebecca Knight from OperaBabes, having been built on land to the east of the village. It was the culmination of funding from, amongst others, Suffolk County Council, Mid Suffolk District Council, Suffolk Environmental Trust, Adnams, the Clothworkers' Foundation, Garfield Weston, the Rank Foundation and the Suffolk Foundation and including much effort from the local community. In 2012, a Multi-Use Games Area or MUGA was added to the north side of the village hall. It has flood lights so that it can be used in the evenings. Two new storage buildings were added to the village hall site in 2015.
