The village of Wraxall lies 2 miles north of Nailsea and 6.5 miles west of Bristol.
Dating from medieval times, name Wraxall is thought to be mean 'nook of land frequented by Buzzards'.
Wraxall Court, the original manor house, passed through many hands until it was taken over by the Admiralty during World War II. Following the war the building became a Hall of Residence for Bristol University.
All Saints, Wraxall's Grade I listed parish church, was built in the 14th century. The nearby Rectory dates from the 17th century.
Parish registers surviving from 1562 record the baptism of black slaves, revealing Wraxall's connection with Bristol's trans-Atlantic slave trade.
