Many thanks to The Frog Pub for facilitating this camera's location and to Avon Navigation Trust for capitally funding its installation. Bidford-on-Avon village is, as its name suggests, situated on the River Avon, some 7 miles downstream of Stratford-upon-Avon and about the same distance upstream of Evesham. The village grew up around an ancient ford, (Byda's Ford) now replaced by a narrow stone bridge, on the Ryknild Street Roman road. The navigable river Avon runs from Alveston Weir above Stratford-upon Avon, for 47 miles, winding it's way through the Warwickshire, Worcestershire, and Gloucestershire countryside, down to Tewkesbury where it joins the river Severn.
