A Fairtrade Town with a wealth of independent shops, great restaurants and many beautiful buildings constructed from Bath stone, BOA is one of the jewels of the South West. Houses are very popular and sought-after which gives the local market a heftier price tag than nearby towns like Trowbridge. There are good amenities, sports fields, and a couple of local sports teams.
There is also plenty of history, from the quirky ancient bridge with its ‘gaol’ and St Lawrence Church, Britain’s oldest complete Saxon building. Originally a centre for the textile industry and wool trade, the town still retains many of the old mills, along with river walks, charming crooked streets and surrounded by beautiful countryside.
BOA is well liked locally for its many and varied independent shops, every Thursday there is also a market with more local producers and growers bringing fresh produce to town. Steeped in history Bradford has a museum, plenty of historic buildings and also a stunning park with riverside walks, playing fields, play areas for children, tennis courts and a bowling green.
The leisure centre has a gym, swimming pool and a range of classes, or if your idea of learning doesn’t involve a leotard (you’ll have to find somewhere else to wear it fellas!), then there are a number of groups and societies with workshops and classes covering a wide range of interests.
Just a 12 minutes train Journey from Bath, BOA is a very good commuter town. The M4 is easily accessible for routes to Swindon, Bristol or further afield (London and Cardiff). The main route through the town can get a little busy at rush hour but outside the town, while the roads aren’t wide (or fast), they are scenic. The closest airport can be found at Bristol.
