North Common, South Gloucestershire

North Common is a village just outside of Warmley, Bristol, in South Gloucestershire, England. Historically this was a rural hamlet surrounded by farmland. In recent years the area has seen several major housing developments. The village is on the eastern outskirts of Bristol and approximately half-way between Bristol city centre and the neighbouring city of Bath.

North Common is adjacent to the villages of Warmley, Oldland Common and Bridgeyate and the nearby Cadbury Heath housing estate. To the east of the village is open farmland and green belt, part of which is currently under review for potential housing developments, this being a current cause for concern for local residents.

The Bristol to Bath cycle/walkway passes through North Common and steam trains from the Avon Valley Steam Railway travel as far as North Common where the rail track terminates.

Many local children attend St Barnabas CE Primary School, Redfield Edge Primary School or St Anne's CE VC Primary school in nearby Oldland Common. Older students attend Sir Bernard Lovell School or other local secondary schools such as The Grange or Kingsfield.

North Common has its own village hall located in Millers Drive and is served by several pubs in particular The Griffin and White Harte pubs at Bridgeyate, the Crown and Horseshoe at Oldland Common and the Hollybush Inn.

There are good road links to the Avon Ring Road (and hence the motorway network) via nearby Warmley village and Bath lies some 7 miles east and is easily accessible by road.
