Stratford Upon Avon

Posted by Website Design, Wednesday, 26th December 2018 @ 5:06am

  • The name Stratford comes from the Anglo-Saxon : strete ford means street ford and points to the point where in Roman times the road crossed the Avon . In 1196, the Bishop of Worcester founded a city there and secured her royal market rights. At the time of Shakespeare Stratford had about 800 inhabitants. At the outbreak of the plague in 1675, 238 people died. This meant the decline of the city for a long time. It was only after 1760 that it was raised again to the consciousness of the English people, as the famous actor David Garrick there organized a three-day memorial service in honor of Shakespeare. He also participated in the financing for the construction of the town hall in 1767, which he called Shakespeare Hall. With the expansion of rail transport and other transport routes in the 19th century, Stratford developed into a major tourist center. Stratford Businesses.
