History

Discover six hundred years of history  

Brockhampton is an ancient estate nestled in the dramatic Herefordshire hills. It has been utilised since the early Middle Ages and features a wealth of interesting features such as a ruined Norman chapel. Despite being so old, the manor has changed little over the centuries.

Wildlife at Brockhampton  

Many plants and animals call Brockhampton home. Over the next three years we will be increasing the orchards here and surrounding them with wildflower meadows increasing the diversity of habitat for our local wildlife.
