The History of Freshford

The village of Freshford existed even before the land at Fersceforde was given to Bath Abbey after the Norman Conquest. A mill existed in 1086, and there are still the remains of one built in the 1540s, at about the time that the current Freshford Bridge was built. Industrialisation in the 19th century saw Freshford involved in cloth manufacture, and the operation of malt-kilns, breweries and fulling mills. The derelict mill buildings are owned by a developer of residential property.
