Latest reviews | Events in Old Sodbury | 10 Places to Stay

To the east of Chipping Sodbury further up the hill is Old Sodbury, older than its larger neighbour the village lay on an old coaching route. In the churchyard of St.John the Baptist there are several old "Bale Tombs" of rich merchants some dating to the early 19th century, and fine views over the Seven Plain towards Bristol. The church, transitional in style houses several monuments including a 14th century wooden effigy of a knight, the fine timber Lynch Gate also serves as the war memorial. The crenellated tower on the hillside above the village is a ventilation shaft for Sodbury Tunnel and was designed Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Great Western Railway.
