It is an ancient village and the Alveston Barrows found on the outskirts of the town date back to the Mesolithic age about 4500 BC and most recently in 2001 two local pot holers discovered a local cave entrance to an underground chamber, the floor was strewn with animal and human bones and pot shards these have been dated over 2000 years old.

The famous Ship Inn found in the centre of the town dates back to 1598 and was the original coaching Inn and the place where the famous ''South Gloucestershire Medic Convival Society " met, recognised as one of England's earliest medical societies.

The village is described through some notable buildings namely the St Helen's old Church which was originally set away from the village and was replaced by the rock faced church in 1885 employing some of the original furnishing including the two bells and some of the furnishings.
