Brampton is a village near Godmanchester south west of Huntingdon, in the Huntingdonshire non-metropolitan district of Cambridgeshire. It has a population over 5000.Brampton has been variously known as: Brantune (11th century), Brantone, Bramptone (12th-13th century), Brauntone, Brampton (13th century)Brampton has a long history and is mentioned in the Domesday Book: there was a church and priest at Brampton in 1086. The Church of St Mary Magdalene or St Mary the Virgin (as it was once called), consists of a chancel with a north vestry, nave, north aisle, south aisle, west tower and north and south porches. This church is mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, but, with the exception of a few parts dating from the 12th century, no part of the current structure is earlier than the 14th century.At one time the higher part of Brampton parish was forest but there are now less than 300acre of woodland. Brampton is generally low-lying, mostly being about 33ft above sea-level, although the ground rises towards the south west boundary where it reaches 164ft.Brampton is associated with Samuel Pepys and legend has it that his fortune is buried somewhere in the village Brampton was the home of his uncle, Robert Pepys, elder brother of the diarist's father; his house still stands in the village. Samuel Pepys was known to have stayed there and at the Black Bull Inn in the village.Brampton offers two more drinking establishments, The Dragoon, and the Montaz Tandoori restaurant (formerly The Harrier pub, named in honour of the RAF base located in the village). Other less accessible places to drink include The Institute, a private members club, and the Bowls Club.
