Bradford-on-Avon Boating and Sailing Holidays
Boating and Sailing Holidays, narrowboats, river cruisers, yacht charter, cruising, based or starting in Bradford-on-Avon.
An important centre of the wool trade in the Middle Ages, this splendid town lies in a steep-sided hollow on the banks of the River Avon which is spanned by a magnificent 13th century, arched bridge. On the bridge is a domed building once used as a chapel for religious pilgrims.
Fifteenth century Westwood Manor is noted for its plasterwork, historic windows and topiary garden and a nearby 14th century tithe barn is one of the finest in Britain, measuring more than 160 feet.
Bradford's most remarkable building, however, is the tiny church of St Lawrence. Dating to the seventh century it was badly damaged by the Vikings but rescued by a local clergyman in the 19th century. Nearby Iford Manor has Italianate pools, statues, terraces and panoramic views.
