We believe the Chapel 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 in 1869, but we understand it was closed in 1968.

Old Maps show this Chapel on the north-east corner of the junction of Barrow Road with Robert Street. In 1885, it is shown as "Hebron Chapel", with a Primitive Methodist congregation, and had seats for 400. It was set back from the road, and was approached by a path.

This may be the Hebron Chapel in Barton Hill recorded by Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website, in which case it was built in 1869, though he lists it in Morley Road.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 6th December 1901 (p.8654) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building named Hebron Chapel, situated at Barton Hill, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol, being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religious worship, was on the third day of December, 1901, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, c.85. Dated 4th December 1901.

A similar notice in the Gazette of 9th April 1968 (p.4179) cancelled its registration, and it has now been demolished. A large warehouse-type building has since been built on the site, the rear of which, accessed from Charlton Street, is occupied by "The Climbing Academy", whilst the front, accessed from Barrow Road, is in use by another organisation.


Now or formerly Primitive 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.


This Chapel was located at OS grid reference ST6055673097. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Barton Hill, Bristol, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
