Stoke Lodge

Stoke Lodge is a suburb of Bristol, England, developed in the 50s and early 60s on farmland to the south of Patchway Common, South Gloucestershire and east of the A38 trunk road. Although the busy London to South Wales railway forms the south-western boundary of the estate, the sound of the trains is moderated by the railway tracks being within a cutting. The new town of Bradley Stoke lies immediately to the east, whilst the suburb of Little Stoke is on its southern edge.

Stoke Lodge housing is mostly chalet bungalows, but there is a fairly large bungalow estate in the north. Stoke Lodge takes its name from the old lodge house on Stoke Lane, an access road that runs through the estate. Part of the original walled lodge served for many years as a local dairy.

An interchange on the A38 allows traffic from Cribbs Causeway, Patchway, etc. to cross the trunk road freely and gain access to the estate. There is however no direct road link between Stoke Lodge and Bradley Stoke. Traffic can also enter Stoke Lodge from Little Stoke via Stoke Lane or Station Road.

Although geographically separated from the more heavily populated Patchway Estate, Stoke Lodge is part of the Patchway postal district.

It is the home ground for the widely acknowledged Shirehampton Colts AFC.
