St Stephen's Church Bristol

The Grade 1 listed building St. Stephen's Church is the parish church of Bristol and located in "The Centre" in the old City.

The building dates from 1470, though there has been a church on this site since the 11th century.

The great storm of 1703 greatly damaged the structure and was subsequently restored over the following years.
