A suburb of the city, Odd Down is located west and south of the city centre. The city ward population taken at the 2011 census was 5,681.[1]

A 1,330 yards (1,220 m) section of the Wansdyke (earthwork) in Odd Down, which has been designated as an Ancient monument,[2] appears on the Heritage at Risk register as being in unsatisfactory condition and vulnerable due to gardening.[3]

The Cross Keys Inn is a Grade II listed building which was built in the late 17th or early 18th century.[4] although an earlier pub on the site served as a coaching inn.[5]
