The Village Green

The main area of The Green is a roughly triangular area with a variety of trees planted over the years by the Parish Council. It is fringed by the Primary School, the Methodist Church, a pub with a restaurant as well as houses both ancient and modern. A small remnant of the original green across the road has an oak planted in 1994 by our, then, local MP and Prime Minister John Major. The green has a long and interesting history and has been used by the people of Brampton in various ways such as for grazing cattle, special celebrations and, perhaps in the distant past, even archery. It continues to be used by the people of Brampton for the celebration of local and national events, fetes, annual fair, and shortly a visiting human circus. It is a pleasant green area for all to use and contributes greatly to the rural appearance of the village.
