Bradford on Avon Museum
on Avon Museum was set up in 1990 to preserve and display aspects of the natural
and historical heritage of the town of Bradford on Avon and the surrounding villages
that once formed the ancient Bradford Hundred. |
Bradford on Avon Museum preserves the old Christopher Pharmacy, its mahogany furniture and shelves of sparkling jars. The shop supplied medicine, chemicals and its own ranges of perfumes and curry powders to households and farms in the town and district from 1863 to 1986. After it closed Bradford on Avon Museum Society acquired the contents and faithfully reconstructed it to form the centrepiece of the Museum.
