No smoking section

Thankfully 1/3 of the huge bar is non smoking so this suits me fine.

Still non smoking

Beautiful Historic English Village

April 22, 2014 by David Herd

Bradford on Avon

Beautiful Historic English Village

Beautiful Historic English Village

 Beautiful Historic English Village Bradford on Avon is a town in west Wiltshire, England with a population of about 9,326. The town’s canal, historic buildings, shops, pubs and restaurants make it popular with tourists. The history of the town can be traced back to Roman origins.

The town lies partly on the Avon Valley, and partly on the hill that marks the Vale’s western edge, eight miles southeast of Bath, in the hilly countryside between the Mendip HillsSalisbury Plain and the Cotswold Hills

Tithe Barn in Bradford on Avon

Beautiful Historic English Village

 One of the best surviving examples of a monastic tithe barn in England, located in a peaceful setting beside the river Avon on the outskirts of Bradford-on-Avon. A lovely walk leads along the river between the town and the barn. 

Tithe Barn

94842369-2664-4fb5-ba62-39c588fcf725

 The barn was built in the 14th century by Shaftesbury Abbey, and it formed part of a complex of farm buildings run by the abbey, so if you want to be pedantic you could say that it is not actually a tithe barn at all, but part of a monastic grange. Most of these grange buildings were arranged around a rectangular courtyard, with the barn on one side of the yard. Most of the other buildings are gone now, but the barn still stands as it has done since the very early 14th century. 

Tithe Barn

Beautiful Historic English Village

The most impressive feature of the barn is the cruck roof, crafted of thick timbers bent to support the heavy slate tiles. How heavy? It is estimated that the roof weighs 100 tons, so the cruck frame had to be incredibly strong to survive for so many centuries. 

Houseboat

Beautiful Historic English Village

The Kennet and Avon Canal is a waterway in southern England with an overall length of 87 miles (140 km), made up of two lengths of navigable river linked by a canal. The name is commonly used to refer to the entire length of the navigation rather than solely to the central canal section. From Bristol to Bath the waterway follows the natural course of the River Avon before the canal links it to the River Kennet at Newbury, and from there to Reading on the River Thames. In all, the waterway incorporates 105 locks.

The Bridge Tea Rooms

Beautiful Historic English Village

The building dates back to 1502 and it has retained its character. low ceilings and exposed beams, you can hear every floorboard creak from the first floor.
