Charfield Community Website
Charfield is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. We are north of Bristol and south of Gloucester, right on the Gloucestershire border. Have a look on this map to see where we are.
Love rugby but want to play a non-contact form of the game?
Touch Rugby is a fantastic sport for keeping fit and allows men & women of all abilities to take to the field together.
You don't have to have had any rugby experience at all to play. It's also great fun!
From May we play on the Village Hall field on MONDAY evenings from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
Please text 07970853871 if you're interested and we'll add you to our WhatsApp group for session updates.
Old ITV programme about the Charfield Railway Crash 1928
Locals sharing memories at the Railway Tavern Pub in Charfield. People interviewed: Mrs Hazel, then "Jibby' Jones, then Reginald Pagett.
Thanks to Graham Tyndall for sharing this with us.
"It was broadcast on ITV many years ago and they kindly sent me a video of the program.
My father is in the video talking about the lady in black and the children's shoes. He worked on the railway in Charfield as a Ganger and we lived in a cottage just below the Plough Inn.
When the cottages were demolished we moved to Charfield Green on the corner right next to the railway line."
