The surrounding wetlands known as Britford Water Meadows were designated a site of Special Scientific Interest in 1975. The meadows are one of the principle attractions of the area offering a tranquil and wildlife rich are for walking, bird watching and horse riding. In the village itself two ancient structures provide the focus of interest. St Peter's Church is a surprisingly spacious village church that still retains its six bells which are still used to call the faithful to worship on a Sunday morning. A little further South East stands the magnificent country estate Longford Castle. country seat of the Earl and Countess of Radnor. Sadly, the estate, its wonderful formal gardens and the magnificent house are not presently open to the public. Dating back to the 1500s Longofrd Castle is home to one of Britain's oldest commercial trout farms, Trafalgar Fisheries. The hungry traveller should visit the Britford Farm Shop. This award winning shop aims to provide the very best in locally produced food and drink.
