Welcome to Braughing - ' A Sense of Place'

This is your guide to the historic village of Braughing, designed to help you find out about the village and make the most of your day out here if you plan to visit in the future.

Braughing is a village and civil parish, between the rivers Quin and Rib, in the non-metropolitan district of East Hertfordshire, part of the English county of Hertfordshire, England.

There is a wealth of history here dating back to pre-Roman times and a huge amount to do when you visit. Whether you like walking, see the Village Walks section, or relaxing in one of or three excellent pubs, we can give you a day out to remember.

The historic church of St Mary the Virgin dates back to medieval times and dominates that area of Braughing's landscape. From there you can discover the beauty of Braughing using the footpaths which are clearly signposted.

Ground Breaking News - Literally

For years, the PCC (Parochial Church Council) and FOSM Trust (Friends of St Mary’s) have been looking at the provision of toilet facilities in the Church.  A recent bequest by the late Dorothy Stannard has made the dream a reality - almost.  

The construction will be in two phases, due to freezing weather restrictions, and the first started on 4 September with the digging of the foundations. Works will now continue on the septic tank and utility provisions. 

Although we have sufficient funds for the first, and part of the second phase, we are working hard on grant applications and asking for donations to enable completion by Summer 2018. 

If you feel that you could offer advice and help on grant funding or would like to support the project with a donation, then please contact here >>> bcwadmin@braughing.org.uk

Regular updates will be published here.
