Information about each of the key facilities is listed below:
All Saints’ Parish Church
Bramham All Saints’ Church sits at the heart of the Village, and at the crossing point of roads from all corners of the village.
The oldest part of the church was built in around 1150 with additions in the 13th century, and underwent substantial restoration in 1853. The graveyard is believed to be of Saxon origin.

Bramham Primary School
Bramham Primary is a school situated in the heart of its community, set in wonderful grounds, with a warm family oriented atmosphere.
Bramham federated with Shadwell Primary School in September 2010 and since then great improvements have been made both to buildings and standards throughout the school. Bramham had an Educational Health Check recently from the local authority which graded the school as being promoted to the “good” category, which means that all children across the school are making good progress.
Bramham Post Office & General Store
The future of our village shop was identified by the residents who attended the 2012 Community Conference as the “number one”. It is an important resource for many villagers, whether providing them with their morning paper; essentials like bread and milk (and wine); or providing vital Post Office services.

The Jubilee Garden was created because of an idea originally put forward by Bramham in Bloom and some residents, as a way to improve the approach to the village making better use of a piece of waste land that was an eyesore.
Bramham Community Action Group then took up the project and following resident consultation the garden was evolved. Using monies raised from The Big Lottery and Groundworks UK. Plans were drawn up and quotes received for the work. As a result Brambledown Ltd were appointed to carry out the work. Over Christmas and the New Year in 2011/12 the work was completed and an opening ceremony was performed by local MP Alec Shelbrooke. This super garden is now a pleasant feature as anyone comes in to the village and provides a tranquil setting for anyone to sit in and enjoy.
