Bramshill Heritage Open Day – 2014

September 9, 2014

Bramshill House is home to probably the largest truncheon and tipstaff collection in the world. Sadly, in 2012 the Home Office announced the property would be sold off as part of a cost saving plan. Sunday 14 September represents what will probably be the last chance to view the collection in what has been its home since the 1940’s.

The house is rarely open to the public. It is the third most haunted house in the UK and the inspiration for The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley. The exceptionally beautiful Jacobean mansion was completed in 1612 and is set in picturesque listed parkland. In addition to the truncheon collection visitors will be able to see  the magnificent seventeenth century tapestries, paintings, white deer, bee hives and Victorian stained glass windows.

The House will be open from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm. Entry is Free.
