A bit about Bradford On Avon
Bradford on Avon is sometimes described as a kind of 'mini-Bath' - but we think its unique position on the edge of the Cotswold's facing the River Avon gives it a magical appeal. Once seen, never forgotten, Bradford on Avon is an architectural treasure chest. Its ranks of dwellings, from tiny weavers' cottages to grand clothiers' houses; handsome public buildings and places of worship and its ancient alleyways and modern estates, reflect the town's development from Iron Age settlement to 21st century working town.
The Town Bridge (shown in the image left) crosses the 'broad ford' on the Avon which is the origin of the name Bradford on Avon. There may have been a wooden or tree bridge over the ford in Saxon times but the Normans built the first stone bridge.
