Brampton, Cumbria – St Martin

  • Description

    ".....The original church of Brampton stands at Brampton Old Church, 1½ miles to the west of the town in the middle of a Roman fort. It is connected to the missionary work of St Ninian. There was a 1778 plan for demolish most of it and build a church in the centre of what was by now a Market Town. An almshouse had been built a century earlier, and a church was built, attached to it.

Christopher Benson was Vicar here for 33 years....."
