Brightwalton - Berkshire

Brightwalton does not warrant a day trip, but for anyone in the area it is worth a detour.


The village is in two halves. The more modern half could not claim to be attractive, but the other end features a cluster of thatched cottages and an interesting church.


The village existed pre-Norman Conquest days and the Domesday Book records, in 1086, the church of All Saints already built and serving the local populace. This church lasted until 1863, but then it was demolished and replaced by a Gothic Revival-styled church which has now been around long enough to be pretty at given times of the year.
