Tytherington, Gloucestershire

Tytherington, Gloucestershire

Tytherington is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. The quarry to the west belongs to Hanson plc.

The former Yate to Thornbury railway branch line passes nearby, with two bridges in the village and a tank engine near the quarry entrance as reminders of the railway. The line now ends at the quarry and is used for the transport of stone, but used to continue through a tunnel under the A38, to Thornbury. Tytherington had its own small station on the single track line: it opened in 1872 and closed to passengers in 1944.

In the village there is a park, a former primary school (now used as the village hall), a public house (The Swan), a community shop, a church and a Baptist chapel. The community shop currently hosts a Post Office branch which is under threat of closure.

To the north-east of the village stands Tytherington Hill (gbmapping|ST675887), a good viewpoint east to the Cotswold Edge, and to the north are Cutts Heath and Milbury Heath.
