Bradford on Avon (sometimes Bradford-on-Avon) is a town in west Wiltshire, England, (eight miles south of Bath) with some fascinating historic buildings, shops, pubs, and canal; along with a fabulous Dickensian atmosphere you see above.
The town traces its origins to Roman times (archaeological digs revealed the remains of a large Roman villa, complete with well-preserved mosaic, on the playing fields of St. Laurence School) and grew into a thriving woollen textile industry during the seventeenth century. There’s more to be said and seen in this town, but I’ll post it with some additional images. It’s a great place. (image lollilo on flickr)
