Title: Bridgeyate  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: North Common, South Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Awkley, Compton Greenfield, Oldbury Naite
Collection: Villages in South Gloucestershire
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Bridgeyate is a hamlet in South Gloucestershire, England, between the cities of Bristol and Bath. The increase in housebuilding in the area has seen Bridgeyate become attached to the nearby villages of Warmley and North Common, but it still retains it own identity with a large common and three public houses, The Griffin, The White Hart and The Hollybush. The Hollybush reopened in March 2014 after an extensive refit.

Residents of Bridgeyate are fortunate that it looks across magnificent open countryside to the East, with walks over ridges and the Avon Valley towards the villages of Beach and Upton Cheyney and beyond to Lansdown and Bath.

Bridgeyate is very well sited strategically, with rapid access to the cities of Bristol and Bath and to the M4 motorway by road, although public transport provision is poor with no local railway station and sporadic bus services. For cyclists and walkers, the renowned Bristol-Bath railway path runs straight past Bridgeyate.

Also there seems to be bit of confusion as to how it is spelt, some road signs and maps say Bridgeyate and some say Bridge Yate.
