Staying in Wiltshire near Bradford on Avon
The most notable feature in the town is the ancient bridge over the river in the centre of the town that still exhibits two of its original 13th Century arches. From the bridge there are wonderful views of times past, with the original old weavers’ cottages and the 19th century (former) cloth mills. The town simply exudes history –Roman, Saxon, Norman, Georgian and Victorian - wherever you may roam! The river and canal (the later offering boat trips) offer the wanderer a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the town, whether by foot or bicycle. There are also various events held during the year. The city of Bath, Longleat Safari Park and Stonehenge are close by as well.
