Church of St Michael and attached railings, St Michael's Hill, Bristol - Bristol, City of (UA)

Church, rebuilt between 1775 and 1777 in a Gothic style, but retaining the mid C15 tower. The interior is divided in three aisles by classical colonnades and has some late C19 fittings. The church was last in use in the late 1990s, and the roofs of the nave and north aisle were damaged by fire in October 2016. In April 2018 Bristol DAC announced that they have selected a buyer for the church who intends to install the new roof later in the year and seek consent for use of the church as a community event space and heritage centre.
