Whitfield Tabernacle, Park Road - South Gloucestershire (UA)

Former chapel, built in 1741. The building has been redundant for many years and a fire has placed the building in an even more vulnerable position. In 2013 Historic England funded an Options Appraisal and South Gloucestershire Council have served an Urgent Works Notice and undertook emergency repairs and consolidation work in 2013-14. Discussions between the Local Authority and the owners to establish a sustainable and viable long term strategy for the site are on-going in 2018.
