The village lies between Iron Acton and Bagstone, along the B4058 road. It is a long village divided by a road with a well used village hall, pub, hotel, Indian restaurant, recreation ground, primary school & church. A village committee organises village events including the children's Christmas party, Summer Fete & Beer Festival.

Several good public footpaths give access to the countryside & there are bridle paths for horse riders & cyclists.[citation needed]

Rangeworthy was historically a chapelry in the ancient parish of Thornbury, a detached part of that parish. It became a separate civil parish in 1866.[2]
