Pro-Cathedral of the Holy Apostles, Bristol
Soon to be converted in to “luxury apartments” we took a trip to Apostles Cathedral with Rookinella and Scott, from 28DL after a rather unsuccessful explore in Gloucester!
The cathedral, once also known as Clifton Cathedral, is in a pretty terrible state, but some of the windows and the basement proved quite interesting.
Apostles Cathedral had a bit of a troubled beginning. Building work started in 1834 but stopped just a year later when there were complications with the foundations which had been laid on an un-even hillside. Almost ten years later in 1843, work commenced again but soon failed and the cathedral was left derelict for a further five years. Eventually a new cathedral was built in the area and the original Pro-Cathedral of the Holy Apostles used as an episcopal see. It later became a Steiner School facility until 2002 when it was put up for sale.
UPDATE: Development of Apostles Cathedral is now complete.
