In spite of living in Bristol for five years, I never visited St Mary Redcliffe. What an omission, it's brilliant! Queen Elizabeth 1 described it as "The fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England" Much damaged in the Second World War, the stained glass is mostly Victorian, the original fourteenth century ones were destroyed by Cromwell.
Some of the best portraits.
The Cabots and their voyages commemorated.
Two modern windows, I'm told this is the only lady with handbag in a church, and the nude below must be almost unique.
The outside is another treasure trove of gargoyles and grotesques.
A couple of green men inside.
