About Brent Eleigh

A small village that must have suffered a major fire at some time (Brent means burned and it appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Burnteylie"). The 1837 OS map shows the village as "Brent Illeigh", though the 1856 map has the modern spelling.

Fine wall paintings in the 14th century church were uncovered in 1960.

The Cock has one of the most un-spoiled pub interiors in the region.
