A village’s baptist church has celebrated the 225th anniversary of its establishment.

The Braybrooke Baptist Church was set up in 1788 – when George III was on the throne.

A flower festival was held at the chapel in the village last weekend (September 21 and 22), with different displays representing the trades of the chapel’s trustees.

They incliuded weavers, farmers, bakers and cordwainers said Geoff Pitcher, who has written what is believed to be the first history of the church.

Services formerly took place in a barn on the site of the chapel, which was the converted before being pulled down in 1829.
