On arrival, we will visit the church of St Barnabas.The church is Puritan in style which is very different from most medieval churches and is remarkable in that it was one of only 6 churches built during The Commonwealth (1649-1660) which was the period between  the death of Charles I and the Restoration of the Monarchy under Charles II. The nave and chancel are unusually combined under a single roof; a good example of double-hammerbeam construction.

After a pre-booked inclusive lunch at nearby Aardvarks Books, we will listen to an introductory talk on the history of Brampton Bryan delivered by Edward Harley, who's family have lived in the Hall for over nine centuries. A guided tour will follow. 

Tea will be served in the Hall.
