About Brockhampton

The village of Brockhampton is best known for its fine Stone and Concrete church designed by W.R.Lethaby a follower of the Arts and Crafts movement, and was built at the turn of the 20th-century.

All Saints is essentially a country church which was built at the instruction of Alice Jordan, daughter of Ebenezer Jordan of Boston, U.S.A who purchased Brockhampton Court as a wedding present for Alice when she married Mr. Arthur Forester.

One of the beauties of the church is its stunning thatched roof, one of only three in the country. The interior architecture is pure Arts and Crafts, in the nave steep arches spring low from the walls, without brackets. There is superb 20th-century stained glass by Christopher Whall, but the glory of the church lies the two amazing tapestries designed by Sir Edwin Burne-Jones. These wonderful pieces flank the high alter, they were made in the workshops of William Morris.

The area is wonderfully rural, often you will come across an ancient farmhouse surrounded by sweeping meadows grazed by cattle and sheep. There are stunning views of the Wye Valley with its silvery snaking river and although the Brockhampton estate was passed to the National Trust it still operates the land by the use of traditional farming methods.

The area offers magnificent scenery and lovely woodland walks
