Frampton on Severn

Frampton on Severn borders The Gloucester to Sharpness Canal on its eastern side and by the Stroudwater Canal to the north. There are three bridges on The Gloucester to Sharpness Canal within its parish, Splatt, Fretherne and Sandfield.  Walk Bridge on the Stroudwater Canal is now a permanent road bridge on Whitminster Lane. The heart of the village nowadays is The Green which is said to be the longest in England. Houses in the village span a period from the 15th century to the present day. The Cadbury Factory, built in 1916 provided employment and a focus for social life in the village until its closure in 1983. The present population of 1,400 mostly travel out of the village for employment but social life in Frampton remains rich.
