All Saints' Church, Brompton by Sawdon
All Saints' Church, Brompton by Sawdon
Brompton by Sawdon probably owes its existence to the many springs that come to the surface near these ponds. This photograph is looking north into the ‘next square’. These ponds (two of three mill ponds in the village) have springs coming up into them and are known as, SE9481 : Brompton Ponds.

There are also springs coming up in the grounds of Brompton Hall (home of Sir George Cayley – see below) that feed into the upper of these two ponds by means of a culvert under the lane by the church.

Other springs come to the surface in the third mill pond from which, at one time, the village drew its water supply.
The church was the location for the wedding of the poet William Wordsworth who in 1802 married Mary Hutchinson, of nearby Gallows Hill.

* Sir George Cayley was the first to identify the four forces of flight - thrust, lift, drag, and weight - and to describe the relationship each had with the other.
