The town’s Museum is run by a dedicated team of local volunteers to catalogue the natural and historic heritage of Bradford on Avon and the surrounding villages. Amongst the collection are objects dating from the Stone Age through to the present day.
The Museum’s website can also act as a great starting point if you are interested in a specific period of BoA’s history and want to dig deeper.
This was recently discovered by the visiting family of a lost WW1 soldier, who found that their fallen relative’s medal had been safely kept there waiting to be claimed. As a result and after some verification, the family were presented the medal by Mervyn Harris and Cllr Simon Mc Neill-Ritchie in August 2018. The family have since gifted it back to the Museum for safe keeping. You can find out more about this story on the Town Council website HERE
