Bridford - British Sheepskin

Soft hide with a forgiving fleece the colour of He-Man. The colour needs to be seen to be believed.

This skin will roll up nice and compact for a super-luxury walking or camping tool. Ideal for drip drying your feet after wild swimming.

Easily washed and dried in a machine.

BRIDFORD is a wild, hilly parish, rising to over 1,100 ft. in places, and containing much beautiful scenery. The village is larger than usual in these upland parishes, mainly because of the granite quarries and the barytes mine.

Description

Pride in the pub.

Bridford, or Bridaforda as the Doomsday Book recorded it in 1086 – means Bride’s Ford.

It’s unclear whether her marriage lasted, but presumably not, or we’d be calling it Wive’s Ford, or Mother’s Ford, or even Widow’s Ford, heaven forbid. But to stick at this life stage is curious, and makes me question its time-limitedness.

Bridford today is just as strongly independent as it needed to be historically. Even modern vehicles can’t make it through to Bridford on a snowy day. Bridford can be cut off by the steep hills that surround the village, and the village has always had a self-reliance that comes from this natural weather-dependancy.

During a cold wet snap, Bridaford may as well be as from the mainland as Sark is from Guernsey. 

The Bridford Inn is rated very highly. Do check the weather forecast before booking a table, though, a storm could see you cut off for days, and heaven knows who you might meet.
