Historic Buildings and Places St James Priory Visit

20th Feb, 2024

Come with us on a tour of the oldest building in Bristol. This Grade I listed former church is part of the remains of a Benedictine monastery founded in 1129. Much of the monastery’s lands and buildings had been leased to wealthy landowners prior to Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries, which ultimately saved some of the buildings from destruction. The western arm of the cruciform building subsequently became the parish church until it was decommissioned in 1984. In recent years, following a period of neglect, a largescale restoration project was undertaken, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and completed in 2011.
