[ELH] Bristol's medieval churches: St Mary-le-Port



St Mary's served the market, in Old English port, which as well as lying close to the centre of the Norman walled enceinte was also near the medieval waterfront represented by the later Quay above Bristol Bridge.

St Mary-le-Port and St Peter's together form potentially an axially-planned pair of churches of the type found elsewhere in Anglo-Saxon towns, often under the respective advocations of these two saints.
