    Welcome to the Bratton Fleming Website

    Firstly let me offer my apologies to all who have been waiting for this website to go back up.  It some years since I last created a website and much has changed in that time; software I had previously was no longer available and newer versions either not up to the task in hand or, as in the case of my final choice, have taken a lot of learing.

    Anyway, the site is now up and I will be developing it over the coming weeks and months.  Any comments, observed errors or suggestions will be gratefully received; please email me here.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT AS PAGES ARE DEVELOPED AND PUT UP THERE MAY BE SOME ODDITIES AND MISSING LINKS - PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME ABOUT ERRORS OF THIS TYPE IN THE COMING WEEKS - I WILL REMOVE THIS NOTICE WHEN I HAVE TESTED OUT INITIAL PAGES

    A Few More Bratton Pictures

    Just a few more pictures of Bratton: a lovely winter view of the Parish Church; a scene from the White Hart in happier times showing Charles Whybrow (to whom the village is indebted for his work on the history of our community), and finally the Composting Group (led by Terry Shapland) without which many village groups would have closed and many projects and improvements never come to fruitition.  As the site develops there will be many more pictures available.
