Afternoon Visit to Brampton Bryan Hall
Thursday 19 March 2020

Brampton Bryan Hall was built in the 1660's beside the remains of the castle and it was largely remodelled in 1740

During the Civil War, the castle was defended by Lady Brilliana Harley; her letters survive and give an extraordinarily vivid picture of a castle under siege. 

Our visit starts with a talk by Edward Harley whose family have owned the estate since 1309. He will outline its history and introduce items that will be seen on the tour of the house. 

We will have tea in the old dairy.
