Shirehampton is a village near Avonmouth, at the edge of Bristol, England. Separated from the capital of the West Country by the length of the Avon Gorge, the community retains its village feel, while still being a perfect location for reaching all parts of the city and its work environment. Within easy reach of all the main motorway junctions in the area, including the new M4 Second Severn Bridge crossing, the village looks across the River Avon towards the green fields of North Somerset and, from Penpole Point, to the far hills of South Wales.
