The remote village of Brandon Parva consists of only about 20 houses and All Saints church > LinkExternal link is located beside a farm track > LinkExternal link by Church Plantation, on its own. Much restored and repaired during the 19th century, a few original corbels have survived, as has the original C14 font > LinkExternal link. In the southeast corner of the nave there is an elaborate memorial to John Warner (d. 1702) at the age of 21 > LinkExternal link. The roof was rebuilt in 1860 and the stained glass in the windows is early 20th century; the tower arch is decorated by a hood mould carved with trailing vines, presently supported with props as the keystone of the arch has slipped and there is a danger for the whole structure to collapse > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. In march 2008, English Heritage and the Heritage Lottery Fund have granted 178,000 towards the funding of urgently required repair work. The church is kept locked, a key is readily available.
