Bradmore is a small village comprising a 8.2 hectare Conservation Area which includes 19 Listed Buildings or structures (all Grade II). The core of the village has changed little over the last 300 years. A devastating fire in 1705 destroyed 12 houses and numerous barns, stables and workshops in under two hours, the damage estimated at 6000. The village was reconstructed largely by Sir Thomas Parkyns (1662-1741) of Bunny Hall, who designed and built many of the red brick cottages barns and farmhouses in existence today.

The 13th/14th century tower and spire of the church survived the fire but was never properly rebuilt and by 1881 a Mission Hall had been built adjoining the original tower. By the beginning of the 20th century this brick building was used as a barn. This now forms part of the church and Holy Communion is celebrated once a month at an altar which is situated at the bottom of the tower. The church has never been dedicated to a saint, and was originally built as a chapel of ease within the main parish of the church at Bunny, see SK5829 : Church Street, Bunny.
