Hippodrome on September 15, 2004. '''Stoke Bishop''' is a very affluent and medium-sized outer city suburb in the north-west of Bristol, located in between Westbury-on-Trym, Sneyd Park, and Sea Mills (Sea Mills, Bristol). Although relatively small, Stoke Bishop's population has increased due to substantial infilling on the ''Smelting Works'' sports ground and ''The Grove'' which used to belong to Clifton High (Clifton High School (Bristol)) school. The population of Stoke Bishop varies throughout the year because of the influx of students to the large campus of halls of residence situated on the edge of the suburb and the Downs (the Downs (Bristol)) during university term time. The league was formed in 1889 as the '''Birmingham & District League''' to cater for teams in Birmingham and the surrounding area, but soon became established as one of the strongest leagues outside the Football League (The Football League) itself, with teams from as far afield as Bristol and Wales taking part. After the Second World War it absorbed the rival Birmingham Combination to become firmly established as the leading league in the area, but a gradual decline in its status began in the late 1950s and it now operates at a much lower level than in its heyday. The league currently acts as a feeder to the Midland Football Alliance, to which one team is promoted to each season. Approximately fifty teams compete in the league each season, with new members regularly joining from smaller local leagues. Despite the league's name, in the years prior to the First World War it came to include teams from as far afield as Bristol, Wrexham and Crewe, as well as including the reserve teams of local Football League clubs. A number of clubs which had enjoyed success in the Birmingham Combination also joined the league, which was seen as a step up to a better standard of football. The league's large coverage area began to create problems in the 1930s, however, as many clubs found the long and costly journeys to away matches difficult, and began to drop out in favour of playing in leagues which covered smaller areas. In 1938, Bangor City (Bangor City F.C.), Worcester City (Worcester City F.C.), Wellington Town (Telford United F.C.) and the reserve teams of Cardiff City (Cardiff City F.C.) and Wrexham (Wrexham A.F.C.) all resigned from the league, reducing the numbers so much that instead of the usual format the organising committee decided to run two separate competitions each lasting for half of the 1938–39 (1938-39 in English football) season, the first named the Keys Cup and the second the League Cup.

Bristol received a Royal charter in 1155. It was part of Gloucestershire until 1373 when it became a county (Historic counties of England) in its own right. From the 13th to the 18th century, it ranked among the top three English cities after London, along with York and Norwich, on the basis of tax receipts, url http: www.buildinghistory.org town-rank.shtml title The Ranking of Provincial Towns in England 1066–1861 work Delving into building history publisher Jean Manco accessdate 13 January 2010 date 25 July 2009 last Manco first Jean until the rapid rise of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham in the Industrial Revolution. It borders the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire, with the historic cities of Bath (Bath, Somerset) and Gloucester to the south east and the north respectively. The city is built around the River Avon (River Avon, Bristol) and also has a short coastline on the Severn Estuary which flows into the Bristol Channel.

Bristol's prosperity has been linked with the sea since its earliest days. The Port of Bristol was originally in the city centre before being moved to the Severn Estuary at Avonmouth; Royal Portbury Dock is on the western edge of the city. In recent years, the economy has depended on the creative media, electronics and aerospace industries and the city centre docks have been regenerated as a centre of heritage and culture.
