Notes on Church:
St Botolph's Church has origins from the very early Norman period, with an intriguing South Doorway. Indeed the whole Nave maintains its narrow character from the 11th Century. The W Tower was added in the 15th Century, and a Chantry Chapel was added in 1542. George Edmund Street restored the church in the 1860s rebuilding the Chancel and the Chancel Arch, together with the Nave windows.

Introduction to Stained Glass:Bradenham has windows of the Victorian era by 3 of the best makers, John Hardman, Frederick Preedy, and Charle Eamer Kempe. There is also a rare window of the same vintage by a talented young James Tennant Lyon. More...
A Chantry Chapel was added to the church in 1542, and has some splendid Heraldic Glass from the 16th and 18th Centuries, however the Chapel (now the Vestry) is not normally accessible. There is also a modern window commemorating the Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee in 2022.
