Bristol, Gloucestershire

Christchurch, Clifton, Bristol, Gloucestershire

During the mid-19th Century the part of Bristol today called Clifton was growing hugely. Work had begun on Brunel’s bridge in 1831 and although it was not completed until 1864 the bridge rapidly became a catalyst in growing Clifton’s well-heeled populace.

A parish church was built in 1841 to accommodate the growing suburb which was designed by Charles Dyer. The spire, by John Norton, was added in 1859 and the aisles in 1885 by William Basset Smith.

Bizarrely a replica of the church exists in Thames Town, a suburb of Shanghai built to imitate English architecture.
