A lovely and charming place to visit with the river winding through the heart of the town. The medieval old Town Bridge, built originally in the 13th century and widened in the 17th century, still has two of the original arches. The small attached building was a lock-up which held two cells for prisoners waiting to be brought before the magistrate.
The church tower and spire were built in the 1400s.
There are a few timber built houses dating from Tudor times but the majority of buildings are stone, like the old textile mills which still line the banks of the river.

And one of the lovely old buildings in it’s new life as a restaurant and tea room.
