St. Barnabas. Brampton Bryan
St. Barnabas. Brampton Bryan. The present church is unusual in that built in 1656, it was one of only six churches built during the period of the English Commonwealth ( There is a leaflet naming the other churches that we believe were built during this time). It replaces an earlier building that was destroyed during the siege of Brampton Bryan castle during the civil war in 1643. The breadth of the church is all out of proportion to its length. Its nave and chancel are one, all covered by a very fine double hammer beam roof. The church contains one early 14th century monument to Lady Margaret de Brampton, shown holding her heart in her hands. St Barnabas is unlike a mainstream Anglican Church, the interior has been described as a 'Puritans Preaching Box'. More of this is available in leaflets in the church. Brampton Bryan village was destroyed during the English Civil War when the castle was besieged. This image of the Civil War re-enactors shows the armies marching back through the mists of time

St Barnabas has successfully completed the first phase of its major Forward St Barnabas project for urgent repairs and improvements. Initial support for this from the Heritage Lottery Fund was followed by significant Grants from the Herefordshire Historic Churches Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Harley Charity, All Churches Trust, Laslett Charities, Lady Forester Trust, and four other Charities, together with some notable donations from individuals. Following additional grants from the National Churches Trust, the National Lottery has now awarded £236000 from its Heritage Fund to complete the Project!
NLHF sponsored repair work has started and work on the roof tiles is ongoing.
