ABANDONED CHURCH

The is an abandoned church in Kingswood Bristol. U.K A very spooky place and very scary at night, I wouldn't go there after dark alone. fittings removed at time of inspection.

 

THE FOLLOWING HISTORY IS FROM CHURCH CRAWLER;

This chapel was built to accommodate the enlarged congregation attending Whitfield's Tabernacle. It was closed for worship in 1983. The building has group value with the Grade I-listed Whitfield Tabernacle and forms a significant part of a historically significant Methodist enclave

to lower level, sashes with glazing bars in exposed wooden frames. Plain

square headed door opening to right with recessed door. Bronze plaque

reads: "This building was erected by - George Whitfield BA and John Cennick

AD 1741 - it is - Whitfield's first tabernacle, the oldest existing memorial

to his great share in the 18th century revival." Right hand end elevation

has 2 plain doors, one at each end, and cambered head window above, 3 tall

semi-circular headed windows to the centre, sashes with glazing bars, in

exposed wood frames. Mid C19 2 storey vestry and committee room extension

to west.

Interior: Gallery on 3 sides on corner columns with palmette caps; panelled

galleries, one panel being the original preaching stone. The original

building has the central roof, the flanking ones being added 1802 with

the galleries.
