SAVE Walking Tour of Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire  

Saturday 1st October | 12.00 – 14.00


Join SAVE and Trustee Timothy Cantell on a walking tour of Bradford-on-Avon. One of the Six English Towns (second group) selected by Alec Clifton-Taylor for his famous TV series, so ranking alongside Berwick and Warwick, Bradford-on-Avon is a gem, boasting a wealth of history to see from a Saxon church to 17th-century mills, from a 14th-century tithe barn to a 1930s collector’s item.  

Nonetheless the town had a conservation battle as early as the 1950s and has not been free of controversy since. A fascinating tour (also hilly – the Cotswolds here peep into Wiltshire) is promised. 

Tickets: £14 for Friends and Saviours  £18 for general public 

Time: 12.00 – 14.00 

Meeting point: Bradford-on-Avon Railway Station forecourt at 11.50 

Route: Generally moderate terrain with some hillier sections 

Duration: 2 hours
