Temple Church of the Holy Cross - derelict, Bristol: 2 reviews and 6 photos
The Temple Church of the Holy Cross was built in the 14th and 15th centuries. It suffered from the bombing of WW2 and is now a ruin.
The drunken lean of the tower is not the result of the bombing however, nor is it an illusion induced by too heavy a lunch at the nearby Kings Head (qv). The church was built on marshy land without proper shoring up, and began to lean shortly after its construction.
