Portbury is a small village near the Severn Estuary between Bristol and Portishead with good access to the M5 and the A369. There is evidence that life has been going on at Portbury since ancient times. n 1988 a standing stone was recovered from a farmer's pond and placed outside a local school. A time capsule containing details of village life in 1988 was buried beneath the standing stone. There are a number of ancient hillforts and burial sites within a seven mile radius of Portbury. They are interesting sites for the historically or mystically minded to explore. The village gives its name to 'The Portbury Hundred', a small collection of villages nearby. The Portbury Hundred is detailed in William the Conqueror's domesday book, a 'hundred' in this case denoting an area of land deemed sufficient to sustain one hundred families. Records for christenings in Portbury date back as far as 1559. Part of the nearby Royal Portbury Dock is situated in the parish of Portbury, which has the largest entrance lock of any port within the UK. There is a fine pub in the village called The Priory. The pub is so named because there was once an a priory in Portbury.
