Brampton Park History
The history of Brampton Park can be traced back to the 12th Century when the estate was the same size as it is now, approximately 125 acres.
It has been subject to many changes of ownership leading to various extensions and improvements throughout the centuries until in 1907 when the most spectacular and devastating fire in Brampton Park’s history occurred, the eastern half of the building was gutted in a blaze which lasted 3 days. The destruction was so complete that no attempt was made to rebuild the original house and little more than one-third of the building, as it stood before the fire, is now in existence. The refurbished area can be distinguished by the brick colour used. The 19th Century building work was completed using mainly yellow bricks and the early 20th Century repairs were carried out using bricks of a more reddish hue.
During the first World War, the manor was used to house German prisoners. With the onset of World War 2, the property subsequently became the ‘Sun Babies Nursery’, a home for about 100 infants evacuated from North London. It continued to be used for housing evacuees until the Spring of 1942.
A further refurbishment programme began in 1987. The renovation was finished in late 1988 and the results of the work have seen sensitive blending of modern building and decorative materials with the aim of retaining as much of the character of the old building as possible.
In the late Spring of 1945 Brampton Park became the functional Headquarters of the RAF Technical Training. It has been home to various branches of the RAF since, and its association only finished when the site was recently acquired for residential use.
The beautiful market town of Huntingdon just 3 miles away owes its existence to the crossing of two important highways; the river Ouse and the Ermine Street Roman Road. Boasting a famous son Oliver Cromwell, who was born here in 1599, Huntingdon is full of History.
An abundant range of services and amenities include a local hospital and three separate health centres along with a winning combination of sporting and recreational facilities. Educationally there are first class pre-school groups, nursery and primary schools, two secondary schools and the Huntingdon Regional College for further and adult education.
The university city of Cambridge with its leading-edge computer information technology businesses, is just 15 miles away, and London Stansted Airport only a further half an hour away. Train journey times of under an hour into King’s Cross Station, London makes Huntingdon even more attractive.
