The Anglo-Norman St. Mary's Church in Brading dates back to 1180. It contains the tombs of the Oglanders, a local family whose Norman ancestor is thought to have fought under William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. You can still see the old lockup, dating from 1750, complete with stocks and whipping post at the Hall.
