Description:
The Civil Parish of Winterbourne or Winterbourne Parish is located in South Gloucestershire, on the outskirts of Bristol, England. It comprises four communities, three of which act as ecclesiastical parishes within the overarching Civil Parish: Winterbourne, Winterbourne Down, Hambrook, and Frenchay. Given the Parish's location, each of its villages/towns are fairly modern and busy, feeding traffic onto the M4 and the M32 motorways and thus Bristol and Cribbs Causeway etc. They do however still exhibit many of the traditions expected of a typical English Parish.
