Geocache Description:

A small container that will take small swaps / TB's if you wish.


St Aidans with St George is one of the 7 churches in East Bristol Partnership.  I am setting up a cache for each of these and will link them once they are live.

Just to reassure you, I do have permission for the caches to have been placed in the grounds.

The church was supposed to be longer than it is... as with many churches in the area the money ran out before the building was completed. It's left it with some good acoustics though so they run an art programme.

Church History

The East Bristol district of Saint George takes its name from the parish church which once stood near the Fountain.
Bishop Butler of Bristol first founded the church in 1756, in response to the growing population of the area. Up until this time the area had been within the parish of St Philip and St Jacob. Towards the end of the 19th century it was decided to build a bigger church in the fashionable neo-gothic style and this opened in 1879. However, there was to be yet a third church. In 1976 the old St George church was demolished, with much resistance from the sturdy tower, and the congregation moved into the adjacent former Church Boys’ School. In the early 1990’s the floor of this building was condemned and the congregation of Saint Aidan’s Church generously invited the Saint George members to join them, where they received a warm welcome. They were delighted when the Saint Aidan’s PCC decided to include the name ‘Saint George’ in the parish title, thus continuing a 250 year old dedication.
