For those who do not know Braughing is pronounced "Braffing".
This pretty village lies in the valley of the River Quin and has been in existence since Roman times being close to the Roman road, Stane Street, from Colchester to St. Albans. There is also evidence of an Iron Age site nearby.
The village is centered on the picturesque ford, and timber framed buildings surround the church, St. Mary the Virgin. There are also Methodist and Congregational churches dating from the early 1700's.
Braughing is popular with film makers, recently episodes of "Foyles War" were made here. In 1953 the filming of "O'Leary Night" was undertaken at the railway station. Several television advertisements have also been made here.
