Redwick is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. It is part of the parish of Pilning and Severn Beach. It is approximately enclosed by the River Severn to the north, The Chessell Pill Rhine to the east, the south meets the village of Pilning at the end of Redwick Road (by the Cross hands Public House) and the western edge finishes in line with mainline of the railway prior to its entry to the Severn Tunnel. Very few people including locals describe themselves as coming from Redwick, usually they refer to themselves as being from Pilning or New Passage.[citation needed]

Historically Redwick was, with Northwick, a tything of the parish of Henbury.[1] The village was first mentioned in 955 under the name Hreodwican, meaning "place of reeds".[2]
