For many years Branton was just a hamlet in Yorkshire and today it is still a small quiet village with a population of around 2,000. Across the M18, Cantley is a civil parish where the Hall is believed to have been a residence since the 7th or 8th century and the growth of this area is likely to have been how Branton was formed.
