Famous residents

Some famous residents of St Nicholas-at-Wade include the following. The village connections of the Bridges family and TJ in particular were celebrated on 28 June 2003 in 'Bridges Between Nations', the Sixth John Briggs Memorial Lecture, at which Ben Jones (grandson of TJ) and Lord Bridges (grandson of Robert Bridges) both spoke, and international soprano Christine Hubbard sang some songs with words by Robert Bridges.

Although he does not seem to have been a resident at any time, it's interesting to note that on 13 June 1948, Dylan Thomas introduced the BBC radio programme "Country Magazine" live from the Bell Inn. There is a fascinating article about this broadcast (check out the linked local press coverage too).
