History - Sacombe Mews in Bragbury End. Bragbury House is a Grade ll listed house that we believe was built in 1760 for William Manfield. It had been used as a hospital during WW1 and again requisitioned by the government during WW2. The grounds have been owned by British Aerospace but more recently the house has been converted to apartments and some of the surrounding grounds given over to exclusive mews style properties.
