Elberton is a village located since 1996 in South Gloucestershire within the ceremonial county of Gloucestershire, England. It is just beyond Alveston and Olveston and is on a B-road that leads towards the Severn Bridge. It is mostly a farming community with a small church, St John's.

From 1866 until 1935 Elberton was a separate civil parish, but in that year its status was abolished and it became a village in the civil parish of Aust.

Elberton was the birthplace of the Quaker anti-slavery campaigner Joseph Sturge.
