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 a buyer for the church, although a further sale of the church has recently been confirmed. The new owner intends to convert the church to an events space and is in discussion with stakeholders.
