Cemeteries

We believe the Church did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded before 1874, but we understand it was closed before 1902, and the premises are now in secular use.

This Mission Hall first came to my notice when I was searching Bristol Town Plans of 1884-1885 for the New Buckingham Baptist Chapel, in Hotwell Road. The Hall, which was said to be Wesleyan Methodist, and with seating for 250, was situated on the south-west corner of the junction of Hotwell Road with Blackhorse Lane. Much to my surprise, I found a building with every appearance of being a Chapel still in existence. It is a rectangular building of red brick, with sides of four bays, and at the front two round-arched windows on either side of a central doorway, above which is a large window, enclosing a circular light, and 3 round-arched lights - most distinctive and unusual.

However, this is almost certainly not the original Wesleyan Mission Room. By the time Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 was published, Blackhorse Lane had been renamed to Pembroke Place, and the building on its intersection with Hotwell Road was listed as "Buckingham Chapel Mission Hall", which is known to have been built in 1886. The Mission Room had, nevertheless been in existence before that, as it is shown on Ashmead Maps of Bristol of 1874.

By 1914 however, a "New Buckingham" Chapel had been built, on the opposite side of the road, and - it would appear, the Salvation Army had adopted their former building.

It is currently (Google StreetView 2012) a Spar Grocery; and Pembroke Place - always a cul-de-sac - provides a service entrance to the buildings on either side of it.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
