It was lovely to see the steam train coming back through Bradford again this weekend… we have missed the toot echoing along the river. This particular beauty named Braunton, made only its second scheduled stop at the railway station since the mid-1960s to pick up passengers…
And if you prefer a more gentle approach to visiting the town… why not take a narrowboat along the Kennet and Avon Canal…
Which ever way you get to Bradford make sure you take a stroll along the river to Barton Farm Country Park and visit us here at the Tithebarn Workshops.
On my morning constitutional today I was delighted to see the number of pleasure boats that had returned to the Canal… all parked up at a social distance of course! It has been a while since the town has seen this much needed, visitor trade and we at SerenArts Gallery would like to welcome them to Bradford on Avon.
If you’re up on the Kennet and having a Google about what to do in Bradford today… might we suggest a stroll around Barton Farm Country Park and a little visit to the Tithebarn Workshops?
Well… that’s the end of the third week of our gallery being closed. What should have been a bustling Bank Holiday at the Tithebarn Workshops is just another lockdown day at home.
Like most people during this time we have tried to keep our minds as active as we can and we wanted to thank Chris Bryett and everyone at Wadworths Brewery for the excellent, online pub quiz last night. Our son Jake, who is head chef at the George in Norton St Philip put us on to it. The family gathered on Skype and we had a fantastic evening. The quiz was run in support the Trussell Trust Organisation, so hopefully lots of money was raised as well as bringing together and cheering up some isolated people.
Hopefully, in the coming week, we will get a little more news on when things might start getting back to normal… but until then… stay safe and stay happy.
