History of Stratford-upon-Avon
The original settlement of Stratford-upon-Avon can be traced back to the 7th century invasion of what would later become Warwickshire by the Anglo-Saxons. The land was owned by the church of Worcester where it remained a village until the late 12th century, specifically 1196, when it received a royal charter from King Richard I giving it the status of the market town it is today.
The town grey steadily, partly in thanks to its status as a gateway to the network of British canals. With the river Avon being made naviable in Stratford in 1639, a link the the river Severn was created. Further enhanced by the creation of the Stratford-upon-Avon canal in 1816, this increased the towns growth, as well as the later additions of major rail and road hubs.Back to top
