It lies to the south of the River Avon, the old city having grown up to the north of Bristol Bridge, the reason for the city's existence. It is however rarely known by its dedication, but as Temple church, because it was built on the site of the oval church of the Knight's Templars, suppressed in the early part of the C14. The choir and chapels are C14 Decorated in style, the nave and aisles are early Perpendicular work of late C14.
The famous (well, in Bristol it is famous) tower rises to 114 feet (35m) and the lowest two stages were built c1390. Work was stopped because the tower started to lean. When it appeared to stop the top stage was added in c1460 and was built in the then vertical. If you look closely at the tower you can see the change in angle.
However the weight of this extra stage increased the tower's lean again, and the tower was left incomplete without any parapet and pinnacles.
