Living in Bradley Stoke: The Local Area Guide

Situated near three major motorways and on the northern outskirts of Bristol, Bradley Stoke is a far cry from its rural farmland past. This new town was developed in the late 1980s and has transformed into the popular commuter town that it is today. Although it initially struggled during the recession in the late 80s, the new town has become favourable with commuters and young families due to its excellent amenities, road transport links and the warm community spirit on offer.

Demographics

The continued expansion of Bradley Stoke and its road network links has positively aided its appeal as a prosperous town and continues to lure in business owners who wish to benefit from this and in turn, potential employees. The numerous business parks and the opening of a shopping centre with its many shops illustrate this.

According to the 2011 Census, the population of the town stands at 27,000. If you decide to relocate here, you'll find a thriving and vibrant community spirit which is further strengthened by the annual Bradley Stoke Community Festival. Here families and professionals come together to participate in a variety of different events such as the 10K race and enjoy live music and demonstrations.

Education

Naturally, parents want the absolute best for their children. They want to gear them up for the future. Thankfully, the primary and secondary schools in Bradley Stoke provide pupils with the best environment to nurture their skills and progress academically.

Stoke Lodge Primary School is a good institution that consistently illustrates the excellent achievements of pupils achieving Level 4 or 5 in Maths, Reading and Writing. Both St Chad's Patchway CofE Primary School and Bailey's Court Primary School show good pupil progression and are two excellent alternatives. At the secondary level, Bradley Stoke community school was deemed 'Good' by Ofsted and encourages academic achievement among its 1107 pupils. Bradley Stoke's proximity to the University of Bristol, a highly ranked university, means that most school leavers tend to stay in the South Gloucestershire area.

Transport

Bradley Stoke is car-centric. Due to the town's proximity to Bristol and three major motorways, the M4 (running from London to South Wales), M5 (running from West Bromwich to Exeter) and M32 (running from South Gloucestershire to Bristol), many rely on their cars to transport themselves from place to place. Unsurprisingly, the large mass of commuters making their daily journey to work tend to get stuck in frustrating deadlock traffic jams. To curb this congestion, the local council introduced bus services in the town to encourage locals to use public transportation. The buses conveniently carry passengers around Bradley Stoke as well as to Bristol City Centre and the two nearby train stations: Bristol Parkway and Patchway.

There are also many pedestrian and cycle only routes to motivate locals to travel on foot or bike. The beautiful Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve, a tranquil reserve home to beautiful woodlands and wildlife, is a popular traffic-free haunt. Overseas travellers are also well catered for here. Bristol International Airport is a mere 30-minute drive away and allows you to travel to destinations across the world.

Amenities & Shopping

The town is well served by a shopping centre, Willow Brook, which houses several different shops, restaurants, a supermarket (Tesco Express) and a leisure centre. A further two Tesco supermarkets can be found here, along with an Aldi. If you prefer to purchase your produce direct from local producers, the Bradley Stoke Farmers and Artisan Market offers you the chance to do so, every fourth Friday of the month. And with Bristol city centre a short journey away, keeping your wardrobe updated with the latest seasonal trends will never be too hard!

Sportaholics can quench their thirst for fitness at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre and those fancying a quick dip, can pay a visit to the swimming pool located within. If you're looking for a more sedate pastime, golfing at the Woodlands Golf Club could be just what the doctor ordered!
