St Werburgh’s Church

4 03 2013

The Bristol neighbourhood of St Werburgh’s is named after its parish church. But the church, now a climbing centre, was not built here on Mina Road. Rather, the fourteenth-century building was originally on Corn Street (see photo here) but removed brick by brick in 1878 when the road was widened.
