note from www.churchcrawler. . . ./baptist.htm :
"Phillip Street Baptist church [right] is situated in an area which has been mostly cleared of its tiny working class streets - a number of which were the scenes of devastation during the Second World War. It was erected in 1861 but a church had been founded in 1855. It is a huge monster of a chapel and was designed by J.C. Neale, a local rogue Goth who designed some wonderful and inventive churches in Bristol - most of which have been demolished. Phillip Street shows some of his inventiveness but is in a vaguely Romanesque style. The west facade had three huge arches and a stepped arrangement of windows. The side elevations have tall windows with a small aisle added later. The interior is a period piece with a huge organ and galleries."
