Braishfield

Situated four miles North of Romsey and adjacent to Ampfield Parish area 705 hectares, population 588 in 1981. The scattered village of Braishfield lies on several minor roads, and there are many outlying farmsteads and houses throughout the Parish.  No main roads, railways or canals traverse the Parish, so communications are dependent on a network of unclassified roads and a maze of footpaths and bridleways.  The countryside is excellent farming land, as can be seen by the number and distribution of farmhouses.  There are several small areas of woodland giving the scenery a pastoral quality.

Braishfield Manor is an early Georgian brick house with a hipped roof, and the parish church of All Saints was designed by the architect William Butterfield and built of brick in 1855.

Further information on attractions to discover in the area and other interesting villages to visit is available.  For information on public services for Braishfield  please take a look at the Romsey local pages.
