Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Somerset  /  Long Ashton
Long Ashton is a village and civil parish in Somerset, England. It falls within the Unitary Authority of North Somerset, just outside the boundary of city of Bristol. The parish has a population of 6,044. The parish includes the hamlet of Yanley, and the residential area of Leigh Woods (although most of the woods themselves are in the neighbouring parish of Abbots Leigh).The village is built on the south-facing slopes of a valley running from east to west, and on the old road from Bristol to Weston-super-Mare.HistoryPrehistoric and Roman artefacts have been found in the area, at the site of the Gatcombe Roman Settlement, but the village originated in Saxon times. The Domesday Book records it as Estune (the place by the ash tree) and, afterwards, it was granted to Bishop Geoffrey of Constances. The village was normally just called Ashton up to the mid 19th century. It acquired the prefix "Long" from the fact that it straggles along the main road for nearly 2 miles.The parish was part of the hundred of Hartcliffe.
