Bidford-on-Avon is a small village in a sleepy backwater of Warwickshire [slideshow gallery_id=”18″]
Bidford-on-Avon could be classed as a small town or large village, depending on one’s point of view. Well actually it feels more like a large village to me. Located in west Warwickshire, not far from the Worcestershire border, Bidford-on-Avon has a population of about 5,000 people. The parish is made up of Biford itself and the neighbouring villages of Barton and Marlcliff.
The picturesque and tranquil River Avon flows through the heart of the village which is situated about 8 miles upstream from Stratford-upon-Avon and a smilar distance downstream from Evesham.
The Big Meadow is one of the main features of Bidford-on-Avon. This twenty six acre parcel of land nestles by the banks of the River Avon and is open all year, being especially popular with dog walkers and day trippers alike.
