Bradworthy is a village of which I am very proud. Well, I’m not saying that because of Google’s Street View video that has recently been trending on TikTok, nor am I mentioning it because we have the largest village green in England. But now that I have your attention, let me tell you a little bit about Brad’rdy, as the locals call it.
Brad is a small village in the deep depths of North Devon. If you try to navigate anywhere in Devon without Google Maps on, you’ll end up driving through a random cluster of houses and a church with a sign at the end that says ‘worthy’.
This particularly worthy Bradworthy is in North Devon and at the tip of Cornwall. The village is 12 miles from a small seaside town called Bude which is probably the closest ‘landmark’ considering Bude attracts many holidaymakers in the summer.
You may also have seen viral video of a fallen tree in Bude during the UK’s recent storm Eustice.
Without this landmark, the nearest train station is a 35-minute drive away in Barnstaple, which is also where the nearest McDonalds is located.
PS there is no Uber and there is no take away option for Bradworthy residents – Deliveroo, Nandos etc forget it.
This is literally in the middle of nowhere.
Via the Bradworthy Inn TikTok video
To clarify and confirm some facts, the video in question does not contain Bradworthy Inn, which is the trending phrase on TikTok.
The local inn is the only pub in the village, complemented only by a pub 500 meters across the village green called ‘The Social Club’. In terms of the general shopping and dining experience in the village there is also a post office, Balsdons (grocery store), sofa shop (no idea why), garage and primary school.
The viral video from TikTok actually shows a house a few hundred yards to the left of the now-famous pub.
This video has since been removed from TikTok, although it still exists on Google Street View in case you peak.
And since the video’s rise on social media, searches for the quaint village have skyrocketed.
