Search St John the Baptist Church (Demolished):

There have been at least three churches built on this site - the first lasting from 1003 to 1645, the second from 1663 to 1854, and the third from 1855 to 1940. The most recent church was destroyed on 24 November 1940, when it was completely burned out by incendiary bombs during the Battle of Britain. These ruins remained until 1967, when the site was completely cleared, the tombs and headstones removed, and the grounds made into a small park. Although nothing remains of either the church or graveyard, there are burial records from 1656 to 1965 in the Bristol Record Office.
