A lovely historic market town straddling the River Avon. Bradford boasts a medieval town bridge, a Saxon church, one of the most stunning medieval tithe barns in the country, and a 14th-century packhorse bridge. In addition, there are numerous medieval and Jacobean buildings, including the largely 15th-century parish church of Holy Trinity. The old shopping street called The Shambles still maintains its medieval layout.
It is now a great centre for narrow boats to gather on the canal and taking a trip in one of these leisurely vessels is a popular holiday and brings a great number of visitors to the town as a starting point.
The land covered by the Bradford Hundred lies on the boundary between the two classic Wiltshire agricultural environments: "chalk and cheese". The limestone uplands are the equivalent of the chalk land elsewhere in the county, being best suited to producing grain and sheep. In the margins between chalk and cheese, the steep valley sides of the Cotswolds have been used for growing fruit and for timber production. The "cheese", or the lowland clay-dominated valley was traditionally dairying country, as the soil was too heavy for arable farming.
