Harry Stoke is a village in the parish of Stoke Gifford, South Gloucestershire, England.


There were three manors in the parish of Stoke Gifford; the Giffards and Berkeleys held Stoke and Walls. Harry Stoke was a separate manor held by Aldred in Saxon times, Theobald in Norman times and the Blount and De Filton families in medieval times; the Berkeleys bought it in the l6th century.

One of the last coal mines in the Bristol Coalfield was at Harry Stoke; the mine was a drift mine, begun in 1952. Bad roof conditions made the mine uneconomical, and it closed in 1963.

More information can be found on the Southern Brooks Archaeological site.

Future development[edit]

Around 2,700 homes are planned to be built in Harry Stoke,[1][2] along with a primary school, local centre, community facilities and landscape areas.
