Visit Brampton and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Brampton, Cambridgeshire, is on the loop of the River Ouse, with Alconbury Brook on its north side, over which stretches Nuns Bridge. New houses have been built here recently, but it still retains its village green, on which stands an l8th century obelisk.
There are many picturesque old cottages and an ancient watermill, as well as the Black Bull Inn which is 300 years old. Samuel Pepys spent much of his time in Pepys House, a farm-house on the Huntingdon road. Brampton Park and the manor house have both been rebuilt.
St Mary's Church is mostly Perpendicular, but the chancel and the piscina are both late 13th century. The tower, with the date 1635 over the door, appears to be Decorated. The octagonal font has pointed quatrefoils and the Decorated rood screen, with its one-light divisions, has doors with ogee arches. Three medieval stalls have finely carved misereres and the altar rails are 17th century. There are several monuments, one of particular interest, dated 1689, is to Mrs Jackson, sister of Pepys and the last member of the family to live in the parish.
