English: Tockington is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. Historically the village developed around farming based mainly on the rearing of cattle on the fertile flood plains. In more recent times Tockington has become an attractive location for commuters, being situated within the Green Belt and well connected with Bristol. It is south of Olveston and is located in a steep valley. It has a school known as Tockington Manor School, which opened in 1947. Since 2003, the school has hosted the Tockington Ventures during the summer holidays. It also has the Swan Inn, a popular pub. The centre of the village, where the pub is located is a triangular junction.
