View of Brading in the Isle of Wight. Brading is situated in the east of the Island on the River Yar. It is thought that King Alfred founded the town of Brading and that the name means ‘town under the hill’. Brading was once a busy and thriving port and in 1280 King Edward I granted a charter to the ‘Kyngs Town of Bradynge’.
