The Brompton Heritage group is no longer active but this website is continued as an archive of its past projects relating to the history and heritage of Brompton by Northallerton in North Yorkshire.

The group was originally formed in an attempt to save the Wilford mill chimney which was such a feature of Brompton. Regrettably, the chimney was taken down in November 2003 but the group subsequently undertook a Heritage Lottery funded project to provide heritage information around the village. See the Group Projects page for more information about this and other work.

A number of articles and items of interest relating to Brompton's past can be found on the Archives page.

PLEASE NOTE: The facitlity for others to make contributions to this website is not supported.
