think it was such a beautiful building it just looked like an old old building, no sign,s to say it was a church, then again, i carnt read Greek LOL but what a wonderful surprise when we walked in, the church was absolulty beautiful, the paintings on the ceiling are works of art.

A Brief history of Braunstone Hall.

The first records of Braunstone are found in the Doomsday Book of 1086. As a result of the Norman Conquest much of England was divided amongst William,s 1st noblemen. Braunstone was given to Hugh de Grantermesnil, one of his most trusted Barons. Over the centuries many noble families were connected with the lands of Braunstone. During the civil war ( 1642-1649 Sir Henry Hastings a younger son of the Earl of Huntingdon held allegience to the royal forces of King Charles 1. After the war his estates were confiscated by the Parliamentarians and the fine of £2072 led to bankruptcy.

The Winstanleys came to Braunstone in the mid 17th century. James Winstanley purchased the estate from the execuors of the Hastings family after the death of Henry Hastings, in 1649 for the sum of £6,000.
