The railway line between Reading and Basingstoke was built through the village in 1848. However, the village had to wait another 47 years until on 1 May, 1895 a station in the village opened, at the insistence of the Duke of Wellington (a relative of the Wellington who fought and defeated Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815) a prominent landowner in the area. During 1935 parts of the film 'The Last Journey' were shot on the railway within the village.
At County level, Bramley is represented by Cllr. Keith Chapman who represents the Calleva and Kingsclere Division.
Bramley Camp is a military training area south of the village, used mainly by 21 SAS (reserves) and the Berkshire Army Cadet Force. Due to civilian houses close to the boundaries of the training area there are time limits for specific activities such as live firing. but this is widely dismissed by the units who use the training area because the ground is ideal for all types of operations 24 hours a day. The camp has also been used to shot parts of the Channel 4 television series Scrapheap Challenge, and the ITV1 series Midsomer Murders.
