This is partly because of the substantial markets held in the town from the Middle Ages, and partly because at one stage several buildings occupied the middle of Broad Street towards the lower end of the main thoroughfare.From the outset, Chipping Sodbury was dominated by agricultural produce. By the 13th and 14th centuries wool from the Cotswolds was being traded and there is evidence that weaving also became an important industry in the town and that the tanning of leather was also being carried out. The facades of many of the buildings in the Town date from the 18th and 19th Centuries. Many of these often hide far older structures.Today, the town is still a popular destination for shoppers and visitors. It retains the feel of a village and many local families have remained here for hundreds of years. The numerous fairs and festivals as well as the diverse range of societies and groups all play a part in making the town a successful and vibrant community.
