There is an almost eerie loneliness in the situation of Braddock church, with nothing but the 19th century Rectory (now a private house) and the ruins of the gardener’s cottage and the old glebe farm buildings for company. Originally a chapelry to St. Winnow, Bradoc became a separate parish in the early 14th century.

The original Norman church was cruciform and the font dates from this time. Nearby is the site of the Battle of Braddock Down, a famous Royalist victory in the Civil War.
