There are three public houses located in Stockwood. The Concorde on Stockwood Lane, The Man In Space on Pynne Road/Cottle Road, and The Harvesters on Harrington Road. A fourth, the Antelope, was redeveloped to make way for flats. Geograhically, it forms an outermost southern suburb of the city with much green space; the upper part of Stockwood is set on a plateau surrounded by pasture and the the lower part a wooded valley, bordered to its west by the old Bristol to Radstock rail line which is now a cycle way.
The upper estate was built in the 1960's as private housing, together with sheltered elderly accomodation. There are two churches on this upper area: Stockwood Free Church (Baptist) and Christ The Servant (Anglican). There is a public library, clinic, dentistry practice, optician and pharmacies at the upper shops, together with several different fast-food outlets. On a green-space ridge in front of the pantile style shopping-precinct there is an good view of the city and events such as the Bristol balloon-fiesta. Below this green space the rest of Stockwood consists of an earlier estate of previous council housing set on the sides of a steep valley.
