The civil parish of Bradford-on-Avon in West Wiltshire lies on the River Avon, eight miles from Bath. The history of the town can be traced back as far as the Roman period, and it has several buildings from the 17th century, which is when the town had a thriving English woollen textile industry. The local area is renowned for Jurassic limestone, which is obtained nearby and used around the world. On the bridge in the town, which has provided access over river Avon since Norman times, stands a building that was originally used as a chapel but later became a town lockup. The river provided power for the wool mills, the last of which closed in 1905. In 2003, the town was awarded a Fairtrade status, a highly recognised achievement.
