A Church Micro at St.Peter's Church,Bratton Fleming.
There has been a church in Bratton Fleming for over 800 years. The first recorded rector was William de Raleigh, who was instituted by King John in 1212. It is almost certain however, that there was a church in existence before that date.
Much of the church that we see today is the result of a major restoration during the mid 1800s, when it was almost totally rebuilt.
The base of the tower, which houses a peal of 6 bells, dates from the fifteenth century. The remainder dates from the end of the eighteenth century, when much of the tower was rebuilt after it had collapsed.
Inside the church, the two arches at the east end date from the fourteenth century. It is likely that this was the time when the north aisle was added. The east wall of the north aisle also dated from this time, although the windows are more recent.
“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
There is also a Church Micro Stats & Information page found via the Bookmark list”
There is parking at the front of the church.
