"The present farmhouse is C19, but amongst the farm buildings the Old Hall is a rare example in the county of a mid-C16 house that is neither tower, strong house nor bastle. Much altered externally, the house is two-storeyed and has a ground-floor hall containing a big moulded fireplace with the inscription G.O. [Gabriel Ogle] 1567."

This short stretch of the river is in farmland and intersected by two roads, one of them a main road to the border and Scotland, the A696. It contains a good selection of bridges and footbridges, including some curious bridges designed for sheep. Finding the original dates for any of these bridges has not proved possible.
Bradford is a small hamlet with just a few houses and the river winds its way from here to Trewick , rarely staying straight for long.
