The Church

The church of St Andrew, Bristol, had a chequered history, and the third church on the site, built in 1819-20, was destroyed in 1940 by enemy bombing. The ruins were eventually cleared about 1956. The churchyard survives, the site of the church itself being marked by a plaque, and is now grass lawns. See Phil Draper's site and Bristol Web.  

All but the tower had been rebuilt in 1634, because of dilapidation. Enlargement followed in 1768. In the 1820s this church was replaced by a completely new building slightly to the north of it. Later the original church was pulled down, carted away and buried in a quarry.

After the war the bombed St Andrew's, being largely destroyed, was demolished. Christchurch then became Clifton's parish church.
