Chipping Sodbury: A Small Medieval Town

Visitors to Chipping Sodbury can hardly fail to notice its unique atmosphere and genuine beauty. The town’s wide street and gabled properties have guaranteed its protection as a Conservation Area.

In this documentary, Jim Elsworth, Chairman of the Sodbury and District Historical Society, reveals the background of the town’s buildings and its people. The Clock Tower, the Moda Hotel and Dunkerley’s Garage are all included.

Market and fair rights were granted by Henry III as long ago as 1218. The market ceased in 1954, but the tradition of the fairs continues with the lively Mop Fair, held twice a year.

There is also a special feature on pubs and inns dating from the town’s market and coaching days.
