Bridgwater stands on the River Parrett. The area has been known to have been settled for at least a thousand years. In the Domesday Book, it is described as an agricultural town with the name of Brugie. In that thousand years, fortunes of industries and trading as a commercial port have come and gone. Textile weaving was predominant here for many years, then, as the northern mills with cheap, plentiful labour took over the market, the town turned its attention to the making of bricks and tiles, which lasted well into the 20th century.
With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Bridgwater area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.
