Avoncliff and Bradford on Avon

The name of the town originates from the ‘broad ford’ across the River Avon and the bridge is a natural focus for the town. Although widened in the 17th century, it still retains two of the original 13th century arches. A riverside walk into the town centre reveals several buildings dating to the 17th century. The town grew due to the thriving English woollen textile industry.
