It has a mix of small businesses across the manufacturing, retail and service sectors with its prime trade being tourism during the summer months.The origins of the town are uncertain, but archaeological evidence shows habitation in the Bronze Age and in Roman times. The settlement at the Norman Conquest was called Bretlinton, but has also gone by the names of Berlington, Brellington and Britlington, before settling on its modern name in the 19th century.The town is twinned with Millau in France and Bad Salzuflen in Germany.
