Description:
Henbury is a suburb of Bristol, England, approximately 5 mi northwest of the city centre. It was formerly a village in Gloucestershire and is now bordered by Westbury-on-Trym to the south; Brentry to the east and the Blaise Castle estate Blaise Hamlet and Lawrence Weston to the west. To the north lie the South Gloucestershire village of Hallen and the entertainment/retail park Cribbs Causeway.

The Hazel Brook (also known as the Hen), a tributary of the River Trym, flows through Henbury and crosses Henbury Road in a small ford near the Toby Carvery pub. The Ford floods relatively often and a small bridge exists to allow traffic to pass, situated a few metres away.

Henbury is also the name of a council ward for Bristol City Council that includes both Henbury and Brentry.

Henbury Golf Club sits on the south border.

Barratt Homes has recently started a new development in Henbury, known as Hazel Grove. It consists of circa 150 houses and apartments.
