It is situated by Trout Beck (here know as Brampton Beck); there are a ford and stepping stones over the beck to the east of the village. Brampton Mill, by the beck, dates from the 18th century. Brampton Hall (farmhouse), to the south of the village, dates from the 17th century. Historically, Brampton was a township of the ancient parish of Long Marton in Cumberland. Today the village forms part of Long Marton Civil Parish.
