More Information on Braintree

Braintree’s strange name is most commonly thought to come from the river that runs by the town. Although the river is now called Blackwater, it was originally called ‘Bran’ or ‘Braint’. There is also a tributary river called the ‘River Brain’ that runs off the Blackwater and surrounded on both banks with trees. This is why the town got called Braintree, or at least thought to be why. Also, insistently, this is thought to be where the names ‘Bran’ and ‘Brian’ came from. The town gives its name to two former colonial towns in the USA as well.

The town itself still has a few mills and old buildings from the time of its booming textile industry. The most well preserved of these is the Bocking Windmill just outside of the town. The windmill was originally used for grain harvesting, to feed the growing population, and was used as a pub enjoyed by both locals and visitors for a time before being closed some time in the 50s. Since then the Windmill has been restored to full working order and reopened to visitors.
