Braughing Parish Church
Braughing Parish Church
Braughing, with Hitchin and Welwyn, was one of the original Minster churches of East Hertfordshire. Teams of priests lived communally in these centres, going out to preach the Gospel in the surrounding villages. The parish system, with a church in each village, developed later. It is not known if the Minster stood on the same site as the present church. According to a Charter dated about 825, Braughing church was at that time dedicated to St Andrew. A new church in Braughing was consecrated in 1220, and parts of our present building date from that time, with other sections from the fifteenth century.
