The Codrington Arms is actually in the parish of Iron Acton although the North Road area has always been separate from the village of Iron Acton. The area once housed the miners cottages for the collieries on Engine Common (then called Yate Common). The boundary between Yate and Iron Acton divides the common and cuts across North Road. Modern developments have also seen North Road now being physically attached to Yate. The Codrington Arms was known for a while as Jamesons in the late 1990’s. However, it has now reverted back to its original name. The Codrington Arms is now a popular public house and restaurant – ‘a country pub only minutes from town’.
