The village:

The picturesque village of Braybrooke sits on the border of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.
The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside with stunning views in all directions across the rolling fields. Braybrooke is located just 3 miles away from the town of Market Harborough.
There are regular events at the village hall such as themed nights and comedy evenings. The village has its own cricket club and summer fetes, held yearly in the grounds opposite the Swan Inn.

Braybrooke Church:


The most significant building in modern Braybrooke is the Church, dedicated to All Saints. This lies on the central village cross-roads and a key feature is the magnificent elongated spire which was built in the late 14th century or early 15th century? The oldest surviving parts of the church, the moulded south doorway and the eastern bay of the nave, are thought to date from the 13th century

Braybrooke Castle:

Braybrooke Castle is today no more than a large area of extensive earthworks on the east side of the village. The castle was actually a fortified manor house associated, in the main, with two families – Latimer and Griffin. All that is visible today is the platform on which the manor house stood and the remains of both large and small fish ponds which served the manor? The castle was in good repair in the 16th Century because Sir Thomas Griffin entertained Queen Elizabeth I there in August 1564. King James I also came to visit in 1605. In the early 17th Century, the castle appears to have been used a Dower House for the Griffin Family, who then lived at Dingley Hall. The farm house, which was built on the site of the castle after 1633, was occupied until the early 1900’s. It was sustainably demolished in 1960 leaving the ruins that survives today.

I would like to thank all the staff for their wonderful care and kindness that they have shown to my mother (Kate C) during her time at Brookside. Living in Australia so far from her it was a comfort to know how well she was being cared for. I hope to get the opportunity to pop in and say thankyou in person in the next week or two.
