About Us

The Bridge was established in 2012 and is now a thriving monthly magazine, written by local people, groups and businesses, for people living, working, visiting, or just interested in our beautiful part of the Cotswolds.


It is distributed free to over 1500 households and businesses in Burford and its surrounding villages; it is available as reference copies in the library, surgery and some cafes, and it is sold retail in local outlets.  (The name “The Bridge” indicates the original idea of linking the town of Burford with nearby villages, although it now has a much wider readership than this.)

Clendon Daukes - Founder and Distributor

Gordon and Elaine Elliot - Editors

Stephen Richards - Advertising and Marketing

Pete Freeman - I.T. and Website

Judy Cumming - Proof Reader
