Epney is a small village in Gloucestershire on the eastern bank of the broadening River Severn downstream of Gloucester, eight miles south-west of Gloucester.

The village stands between Longney to the north and Upper Framilode to the south. The village has a pub called The Anchor Inn.[1] The population of the Longney and Epney parish was recorded as 285 in 2011.

The hamlet of Epney was first inhabited by the late 13th century,[2] Originally part of the Moreton Valence Parish and has been part of the Framilode ecclesiastical parish since 1855.[3] Since 1974 Epney has been allocated to the civil parish of Longney and Epney.

A small house in the village known as Doris's Cottage dates from the 15th century and is designated as a Grade II* listed building.[4]
