|All Saints Church, Braunston. 3 October, 2016|
Monday, 3 October 2016
Braunston is a rather attractive village a couple of miles north-west of Daventry. The church of All Saints (people around here like to hedge their bets - let's go for all the saints) is situated on a high point to the edge of the village. The road approaching the village is steep, and may have given the village its name: the Saxon word 'brant' meant 'steep', so we have a farm (tun) on a steep slope. However, it must be allowed that there are other possibilities.
