Filton is a town in South Gloucestershire in England. It is situated on the northern outskirts of the city of Bristol, 4.5 miles from its city centre.
The town centres upon Filton Church, which dates back to the 12th century and is a grade II listed building. Filton has large areas of open space, which includes several playing fields, a golf course and a large airfield, Bristol-Filton.
Filton is also home to the Filton Concert Brass. The band, formed 60 years ago, is currently Bristol's highest-placed brass band, having been promoted to the First Section of the West Region at the 2010 Regional Finals in Torquay.
Filton Park is a district within the town of Filton. Filton Park lies directly on the city border, sandwiched between the A38 trunk road and Southmead Road.
Housing in Filton Park is mainly privately owned, semi-detached and 1930s built. Pre-WWI properties in the district tend to be quite large, with generous gardens.
Extensive playing fields border the north-western side of Southmead Road. The golf links, on the hillside beyond, is owned by Filton Golf Club. The area has a primary school and a playgroup. Filton Park is regarded as a desirable place to live since it is close to major centres of employment such as BAE Systems, and the Ministry of Defence at Abbey Wood.
