Brayton Village Green

The green is located in front of Brayton Infants and Primary School. 
On a map dating back to 1892 the green had two levels, the lower level dropping down to a pond. The School (now Infants School) and School House were built in 1872. 
On Christmas Eve 1918 a single Horse Chestnut tree was planted in the School playground in honour of the Boys of Brayton who died in the Great War. On 19th December 1919 twelve more Chestnut trees were planted around the Green as a Memorial to all those in Brayton Village who died in the Great War. Some of these trees have had to be replaced and one was lost when the Traffic Lights were installed. 
The Pond was used less and less and eventually filled and the Green levelled in the early 1960's.
