Bradworthy village, Devon
Bradworthy is a village and parish in West Devon about six miles northwest of Holsworthy and close to the source of the River Waldon.
The village was founded in about 700AD, just after the Saxons took control of North Devon.
In the mid 19th century a village fair was held annually on the 9th of September as well as garden parties in the vicarage. Incidentally, the village square is reputedly the largest one of its type in England.
Bradworthy has a pub, post office, butcher and a general stores as well as the 13th century village church dedicated to St. John the Baptist.
Largely rebuilt after being struck by lightning in 1395, the church was rededicated in 1400. A tower was added in about 1500. The church was gutted by fire again in the 18th century and restored once more. In 1840, the interior was reseated and sections restored again.
