As I write this, my video tour of Bradford on Avon is the most viewed on my YouTube Channel. Amazingly it has had over 1400 views and growing, even with my fledgling subscriber numbers. Thank you to all who have watched it. Originally it was a livestream over Periscope/Twitter before being uploaded to YouTube.
Bradford on Avon is a beautiful small town, full of history dating back over a thousand years. In the video I show you some of the oldest buildings and amazing architecture. Bradford on Avon, as did many old towns grew along the river, a source not just of drinking water, but power for the mills.
“over 1400 views and growing”
The woollen mills created wealth for their owners, and over time the rubber industry started to take over the woollen mills. The last such company to close in the town was Avon Tyres, however they are still going strong with their factory in nearby Melksham.
I hope you enjoy the video, please do feel free to leave a comment below.
