Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Bradford-on-Avon is an attractive little stone town in Wiltshire, 3 miles from Trowbridge and on the River Avon. The streets and houses rise steeply both sides of the river.

The parish church is Holy Trinity, dating from the 12th century.

St. Lawrence church is a rare survival of a Saxon church. It dates from the 8th century, and is said to have been built by St. Aldhelm. Lost for centuries within a jumble of later buildings, it was discovered in 1856 by the vicar.

The 17th century bridge houses a former bridge chapel which was converted into a lock up.

There is a 14th century Tithe Barn, now in the care of English Heritage.

The Kennet and Avon Canal loops around the town.
