    6 Quirky Facts About Bradford On Avon

    1. Detached
      The town is home to England’s oldest Saxon building. Built around 700AD, St Lawrence Church is the oldest Saxon structure to have been built in its entirety in one stage. With no modern alterations it is the oldest building to have survived so long without later additions, been removed (and the stone used for later buildings) or destroyed in the reformation.
    2. Shambles!
      The town still has its ‘Shambles’. A name found in many Saxon towns, it derives from the Saxon word ‘scamel’ meaning ‘bench’ and most Shambles were originally market streets where traders would display their wares on simple wooden benches before the invention of shops. Culver Close was also a busy street where rabbits were bred (mostly for meat) and Conigre Hill where pigeons were bred for the pot.
    3. Shoddy
      The word ‘shoddy’ was a Yorkshire term given to a type of cheap cloth made from loose yarn. In towns like Bradford (Yorks) they were producing large amounts of shoddy cloth, Mills in Wiltshire like those in Bradford On Avon refused to make cheaper, shoddy cloth and orders started to dry up as the North became the centre of the textile trade. The town’s many mills were powered by the River Avon and many of the mill buildings are still standing. As the textile industry moved north, the mills and factories in BOA were converted to creating rubber.
    4. Crown Jewels
      A small mine just outside the town once held the crown jewels. Taken away from London for safety during WWII the jewels were split up. A large number of items went to Wiltshire, some of them made their way into the mines outside BOA, well away from any potential bombing raids. The mine area later became the site of the Royal Enfield motorcycle plant.
    5. Banged Up
      The town’s much photographed bridge has a curious building on one of the arches, this was the town lock-up, used to hold prisoners before going up before the local magistrate and also as overnight accommodation/drunk tank, to hold those who might have had a few too many, until they sobered up in the morning.
    6. Gold!
      One of the gold medal heroes of the London’s 2012 Olympic Games grew up in Bradford. Ed McKeever won gold in the 200m kayak sprint and used to practise rowing on the River Avon. To commemorate his success there’s a gold post box sitting at the entrance to The Shambles.

    About Bradford On Avon

    About Bradford On Avon

    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.

    Leisure

    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.

    Transport

    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.
