Shirehampton, near Avonmouth, at the north-western edge of the city of Bristol, England, is a district of Bristol which originated as a separate village. It retains something of its village feel, having a short identifiable High Street with the parish church situated among shops, and is still thought of as a village by many of its 6867 inhabitants.
Although located on the far north west corner and largely separated from the rest of Bristol by a large swathe of parkland extending from the Blaise Castle estate with the River Avon forming a mild barrier for access to Somerset the community is still a convenient location from which to reach all parts of the city and its work environment.
Travel is also easy from Shirehampton into Gloucestershire, South Wales and Somerset since it lies within easy reach of all the main motorways in the area, including the M5, the M4 Second Severn Crossing, and the M49, and it is served by theA4 Portway and by Shirehampton railway station, which allow access to near the city centre. It is informally known to local people as "Shire", which is also the title of the monthly community newspaper and website.
