Welcome to Frenchay Community
Frenchay is an active and growing community on the outskirts of Greater Bristol, with lots of green space. The name comes from 'Fromeshaw', meaning 'the wood on the Frome' and the river Frome forms the eastern boundary. Explore the maps below to see where we are.
In 1870, W. G. Grace was captain of our village cricket team. Cricket is still played on the Common and we have local tennis, rugby, football and golf facilities. We even have our own local history museum.
