Bramfield Church, Hertfordshire

It is thought that a church has stood here since the 7th Century, however, the earliest definitive record is Saxon and today the earliest surviving work dates from around 1090. The first recorded rector at Bramfield was Thomas Becket who, of course, would go on to much greater things. Briefly after Becket’s martyrdom Bramfield became a place of pilgrimage.

The church was extended around 1370 and the tower was not added until 1840 during Victorian renovations.
