Anyone who has visited Bristol's city centre and looked across the floating harbour
towards the Industrial Museum and beyond cannot have failed to have noticed the tower of
the church of St Paul in Bedminster. The church stands on Coronation Road - named in honour
of the then newly crowned King, GEORGE IV - and was dedicated in 1831. The architect was
CHARLES DYER, who also designed the Victoria Rooms in Clifton. St Paul was badly
damaged on Good Friday 1941 in the Blitz, but was restored in the 1950s.
