Canynge Square was completed in the 1840’s and is a residential location held in particularly high regard as a place to live within Clifton. The immediate environment is already rich in tree lined streets and Georgian or early Victorian architecture. A residents association raises a small annual subscription and manages the central gardens. Clifton Village, with its shops, boutiques and restaurants, is a short walk across Christchurch Green. Convenient bus routes provide easy access to the city centre which is only one and a half miles away as is the M32 and Bristol Temple Meads railway station. Within close proximity are the open spaces of Clifton Downs, Bristol Zoo and the suspension bridge, which spans the Avon Gorge, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The area is particularly well served by schools in both state and private sectors with Clifton College, Clifton High School and Christchurch Primary School all within easy walking distance.
