Redland is a suburb of the city of Bristol in the ceremonial county of Gloucestershire, in the South West of England. The suburb is bordered by others known as Clifton, Cotham, Bishopston and Westbury Park and whilst its boundaries are not officially defined it is generally thought to cover the area between Whiteladies Road in the west, the Severn Beach railway line in the south and Cranbrook Road in the east.
The suburb of Redland is known for two main things; being a popular region for students in their second and third years at Bristol’s universities and for being a largely affluent suburb with a good number of valuable properties.
Etymology Of Redland
There are three main schools of thought when it comes to the origin of the name ‘Redland’ and all have their own merits. The first is that the name is derived from the Old English word Rudding and therefore the area was first called Rudeland, a title which would have meant ‘cleared land’. The second school of thought is that the name has evolved from Thriddeland which may well have meant ‘the third part of an estate’. The final theory is that the name was given to the area due to the red colour of the soil and there is evidence of the region having been referred to as La Rede Londe during the 13th century, which would add credence to this interpretation.
Modern Day Redland
As has been mentioned above, Redland today is a relatively affluent suburb but even so it is found within a busy city and does therefore have a comparatively high level of population. This level of population has in fact reached above 10,000 residents according to the latest available census data and this is a significant number of residents. What that means when it comes to compensation is that for experienced solicitors, Redland residents are amongst the most likely people to begin claims proceedings.
