The architecture is interesting due to the age of the village. Starting with the 11th Century St Mary the Virgin Anglican church, you can enjoy a wander around the heart of Braughing with its wealth of listed and protected buildings. Opposite the church is The Old Boys School, a 16th century building which served as the boys’ school in Braughing until its closure in 1868.
Sunday Teas - during the summer people in the church and village provide ‘Sunday Teas’ with home-made cakes and a Country Stall, helping to raise funds for the church. The Friends of St Mary’s also raise funds to help us to maintain and improve our beautiful grade 1 listed building. Please click here >>> for details.
Braughing's legendary wheelbarrow race
The Braughing Wheelbarrow Race was started in 1964 and takes place in the picturesque East Hertfordshire village of Braughing.
The race starts and finishes at the village ford. Teams of two push a wheelbarrow round a 400 metre course through the village streets with each person taking turns to push the barrow with the other team member sitting in it. Please click here>>> for the event website.
The Braughing Community Orchard was planted with indigenous species of fruit, berry and nut trees and is a delightful walk up from the Playing Field by the allotments.
