Greenfield's shops are mainly spread along the main road that runs through the centre of the village, Chew Valley Road. You can reach them by driving to the end of Manchester Road, and turning left at the mini roundabout onto Chew Valley Road, past The Clarence Hotel, and St Mary's School. You will find the manner and service in these shops very friendly. Many are family businesses of longstanding, local residents.

It is worth noting that Greenfield has a large children's park and playing field, and cricket club, all found off Ladhill Lane, behind King William IV. There is a small river and public footpath running by the cricket club, where many ducks can be found. Very picturesque. There are also two COE churches (St Mary's and Friezland), one Methodist church, and two brass bands (Boarshurst Band and Greenfield Band).
Uppermill is a much larger shopping experience and includes such a large variety of shops. Again the service and manner is very friendly with many family owned businesses. There are many gift shops, and a craft centre, and then there's pubs, restaurants (including Traditional English, Indian, and Italian), cafés, tea rooms (see our Food and Drink page) newsagents, bakers, a butcher, a Chinese Takeaway, post office, hairdressers, pharmacy, clothes, dry cleaning, video hire, children's park and play area, library, canal boating, museum and tourist information centre (see our Places Of Interest page) and many more. The village is well worth a day trip. You will not be disappointed.
To reach Uppermill, carry on driving down Well-i-Hole Road over the bridge, along Shaw Hall Bank Road (past the Rugby Club), turn left up the hill past the railway station and The Railway pub. At the top of the hill carry straight on (rather than turning left back on yourself). The road leads into Uppermill.
