Welcome to Brading Community Archive
Situated in the east of the Isle of Wight, Brading lies on the road between Ryde and Sandown. The site of the town at the head of a navigable inlet was known to the Romans who built a villa nearby. The town grew steadily through the centuries as a trading centre with the little quay on the harbour in operation until the coming of the railways.
