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 1903, but we understand it was closed after 1951, and the premises are now in secular use.

This place of worship is shown as a "Gospel Hall" on Maps from 1903 onwards, to 1951. On the 1903 Map, what is now "Luccombe Hill" is labelled "Tucker Road". Neither Luccombe Hill nor Tucker Road are listed in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902, but in 1914, "Plymouth Brethren's Hall" is recorded before #5 Luccombe Hill, the residence of William Channing Watkins.

The building is built of stone, with a central doorway, above which is a group of 3 rectangular windows. A porch, the full width of the building, with a pantile roof, has been added to the front, with 2 narrow round-arched windows on either side of the central entrance doorway, possibly as a consequence of a conversion into residential use, as the whole now appears to be in private occupation.

Note: the Bristol Town Plan of 1882 shows that a property named "Richmond House" occupied the site, with ornamental grounds stretching from one end of the street to the other. It backed onto another property, Grenville House, facing Redland Road, with slightly larger grounds. Tucker Road / Luccombe Hill was the first to be built on, the houses in this section of Redland Road appearing for the first time on Maps of 1916.


Now or formerly Plymouth Brethren.

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

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Gospel Hall is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
