Bridgwater stands on the River Parrett. The area has been known to have been settled for at least a thousand years. In the Domesday Book, it is described as an agricultural town with the name of Brugie. In that thousand years, fortunes of industries and trading as a commercial port have come and gone. Textile weaving was predominant here for many years, then, as the northern mills with cheap, plentiful labour took over the market, the town turned its attention to the making of bricks and tiles, which lasted well into the 20th century.
Throughout that time, agriculture has been central to the economy of the area, particularly livestock as can be demonstrated by the survival of the annual Bridgewater Fair, a livestock market, since its inception in 1249. These days, the fairground attractions have taken the focus of young visitors, but the fair is still very much about farming and livestock. With such a strong tradition of livestock management in the Bridgewater area, we often find ourselves here to provide:Photo from Featured Project near Bridgwater
