North WiltshireBradford-on-Avon

Bradford-on-Avon, rising above the River Avon, with the Kennett and Avon Canal passing through, a small town to wander around when you visit.

Close to Bath and the building are in the same honey coloured stone. The town was once prosperous on wool as a weaving centre, the factories still remain and the houses reflect the wealth of the factory owners. Later industries included Avon Rubber manufacturing tyres.

Bradford-on-Avon's most famous building is in fact the bridge over the Avon, the present one was built in the 17th century using a Norman bridge as the basis, and has a room once used as a chapel and later as a lockup.

Churches included the almost unique, and small, Saxon Church, St Laurence, which has been restored,  the much larger Holy Trinity Church, and, hidden at the top of the hill St Marys Tor, 1480, also restored.

The narrow Shambles was once the original market.

Tourist Information Centre in the town. Some nice grand houses to explore in the area.
