List of places

Frome Vale is one of thirty-five city council wards in Bristol, England, and is named after the River Frome. It contains the suburbs of Broomhill (not to be confused with the Broomhill in the Brislington ward) and Fishponds, as well as a small part of Frenchay.[2] The northern and eastern boundaries of the ward border the South Gloucestershire areas of Downend and Frenchay.

Notable places in the ward include Snuff Mills, and the Glenside and St Matthias campuses of the University of the West of England.


Broomhill is an area of Bristol that lies to the south of the M32 motorway, between Stapleton and Frenchay. The area is home to the clubhouse of DRG Stapleton Football Club, who play in the Gloucestershire County League, however the pitch lies across the border in South Gloucestershire.

Fishponds is an outer urban area to the east of the English city of Bristol. It is approximately three miles from the City centre. It has two large Victorian era parks; Eastville Park and Vassell's Park (formerly the Vassell's Family estate). The River Frome runs through both parks, with the Frome Valley Walkway running alongside it. A restored mill can be found at Snuff Mills near the Vassells Park end of the river. It has retained its original waterwheel which can still be seen and heard turning today.


Main article: Frenchay

Frenchay is a suburb of Bristol that lies partially in the Frome Vale ward, however the vast majority of it, including Frenchay Hospital is in South Gloucestershire.
