Twin Town: Sully-sur-Loire


Chateau, Sully-sur-Loire

The small town of Sully-sur-Loire in the Départment of Loiret lies a little upstream on the river Loire from the city of Orléans. It is dominated by its enormous moated château, once the seat of the Dukes of Sully. It was originally built to defend a place where it was possible to ford the Loire at low water, but bridged since the 10th century.

The town had a population of 5556 in 2009, so is smaller than Bradford.

Sully became twinned with Bradford on Avon through connections between the rugby clubs of the two towns.
