Northavon

Northavon was a district in the English county of Avon from 1974 to 1996. The district was formed by the Local Government Act 1972 on 1 April 1974 as part of a reform of local authorities throughout England and Wales. Under the reorganisation, the area surrounding the cities of Bath and Bristol was formed into a new county of "Avon", named after the river that ran through the area.

Rudgeway

Rudgeway is a village in South Gloucestershire in south west England, located between Alveston and Almondsbury on the A38 trunk road. It lies east of Earthcott, Latteridge, Iron Acton and Yate on the B4059 road. The original village name was Ridgeway, since it was spread out along the upper edge of the escarpment above the Severn floodplain. Perhaps due to people mishearing the name, it evolved into Rudgeway. The former Methodist chapel built in 1896 is a small gothic structure.

It was abolished in 1974 and the majority of it transferred into the new county of Avon, as part of the new district of Northavon.
