The Black Bull is one of the oldest pubs in Brampton. The house is basically 16th century with 17th & 18th century additions. It is known that Samuel Pepys, the diarist, who lived in the 17th century, took his ale here. His patron was the Earl of Sandwich who lived at Hinchingbrooke House, now a school.

It was once the court of the manor where cases concerning the estate of the Earl of Sandwich were dealt with.

A Tudor country house built around an early 13th century nunnery. It was given by Henry VIII to Richard Cromwell in 1538 at the time of the Dissolution. Queen Elizabeth I came here, King James I was a regular visitor and Oliver Cromwell played here as a child. The next owners, the Montagu family, soon to become the Earls of Sandwich, also played an important part in British history and the House remained their ancestral home the 1960's.
