Combe Down is a village suburb of Bath, England in the Bath and North East Somerset unitary authority within the ceremonial county of Somerset. Combe Down sits on a ridge above Bath approximately 1.5 miles to the south of the city centre. "Combe" or "coombe" is a West Country word meaning a steep-sided valley. The area encompassing present-day Combe Down includes the original village consisting predominantly of 18th and 19th century Bath stone-built villas, terraces and workers' cottages; the post-World War II Foxhill estate of former council houses; and a range of Georgian, Victorian and 20th century properties along both sides of North Road and Bradford Road. Formerly part of the Parish of Monkton Combe, Combe Down village was incorporated into the city of Bath in the 1950s.
Combe Down village sits above an area of redundant 18th and 19th century stone quarries. These quarries were fully infilled and stabilised during a central government-funded project which took place between 2005 and 2010.
