Frenchay is a suburb of
Bristol, England, to the north east of the city, but located mainly in South Gloucestershireand the Civil Parish of Winterbourne.
Frenchay was first recorded in 1257 as "Fromscawe" and later as "Fromeshaw", meaning "the wood on the Frome". [cite book |last=Burrough |first=THB |authorlink= |coauthors= |title=Bristol |year=1970 |publisher=Studio Vista |location=London |isbn=0289798043 ]
The suburb is situated between the B4058, which runs parallel to the
M32 motorway, and the wooded River Frome valley.
Frenchay is now dominated by the large Anglican church of John the Baptist, adjacent to the large village common, which is overlooked by many period houses. The village also contains a
Catholicchurch and a Unitarianchapel.
The main campus of
University of the West of Englandis situated in Frenchay, and there is a small business park nearby.
Frenchay is also home to
Frenchay Hospital, greatly expanded during World War IIfor the US Army, which treated many wounded soldiers returning from the D-Daylandings in Normandy. Frenchay is still one of Bristol's major hospitals. Its facilities have been greatly extended in recent years, although wartime buildings are still much in evidence.
Frenchay Park, an adjacent suburb, is situated within Bristol city limits.
