The Village (street), Brancepeth


The Village, Brancepeth"The Village" is the name of the street in Brancepeth which leads up to the gates of Brancepeth Castle and on to St Brandon's Church. The street includes a number of Grade 2 listed buildings.

"This area of the village is the principle image and identity of Brancepeth and underlines its charm and historical interest. Its character is compact and traditional for a planned estate. The building facades have a strong vertical emphasis and consistent terraced building line continuing the strong linear form. These buildings are of two distinctive phases and styles of building and of considerable architectural quality and consistency. They provide a fine picturesque approach to the Castle and adding character to the Conservation Area. A wide green verge exists on the western side of the road (south of A690) with a planned avenue of trees enhancing the approach to the Castle..." (Conservation Area Appraisal).
