Welcome to our site about Filton

We really don’t want to copy all the other sites about Filton. We just want to get a “Flavour” of what is available out there.

We are hoping to have information about the area. Any opinions we add are not meant to get your backs up, they are just opinions. Please don’t take it to heart, and start ranting. You will find I most likely “Rant” enough for everyone!!


We moved into Filton from Horfield in 1988. There have been many changes since then. Buildings have been pulled down to be replaced by what the council think are for the better. Industry and businesses have changed. We agree some are for the best. We do enjoy more “Chain Stores”, however the Corner Shops are gone forever. That is not all that good, no more personal service!!
