A quick history

Brackley dates back to the 10th century, when it was used by King Richard I to host jousting tournaments. Brackley Castle was built during the Norman era, but was destroyed in the late 12th century after an attack by Henry III. The castle was intended to host the signing of the Magna Carta, but the event was relocated.

Brackley is a market town with a wool and lace-making heritage, and its positioning between London and Birmingham helped the town to flourish as people passed along the transport and trade route. During Medieval times, the town was also known for its two hospitals, one of which is now the Magdalen College School and the oldest school building in permanent use in the UK. The other was used to care for people with leprosy, but this second hospital is no longer standing.
