Hambrook is an area approximately four miles north of the center of Bristol, England. It lies on the eastern side of the River Avon, between Knowle and Stoke Bishop. The area has been inhabited since the late Iron Age when roundhouses and an Iron Age hillfort were constructed. Later, a Roman villa and a Romano-British settlement were found in the settlement. In the 19th century, Hambrook was a small rural village with a school, a blacksmith, a post office, a village store, a pub, and a church. Learn more here.
