It is a lovely town with a proud history of links with the woollen industry.

There are lots of little nooks and crannies to explore.
Some beautiful cottages and some grand old buildings which have new lives as "executive" homes. I am not exactly sure how many executives you can fit into one small town, but Bradford on Avon will have it's fair share as another building development of executive homes is going on in an old mill in the centre at the moment.
There are footpaths along the river and links to the Kennet and Avon Canal and National Cycle Network.
