St Catherine’s Place is an integral part of Bedminster, a famous district of Bristol, south of the River Avon. It is a place with a fascinating history and an exciting future.
Whilst much of Bedminster has seen a renaissance in recent years, St Catherine’s Place is somewhat neglected. Scarcely developed at present, it is located within easy reach of much of the best that Bristol has to offer. With the potential to become a vibrant new neighbourhood and destination for South Bristol, it can act as a catalyst to regenerate the wider area.
Bedminster was once an important township, predating Bristol itself. During the next few years, St Catherine’s Place will be helping to write a new chapter in its history.
When Bristol was little more than a river crossing, Bedminster was already an important township. Now a well-known district of Bristol, for many centuries Bedminster retained its separate identity.
Its main streets, East Street and West Street, date back to Roman times. Listed in the Domesday Book as a royal manor, Bedminster later belonged to the Lords of Berkeley, who founded the hospital that gives St Catherine’s Place its name.
Our vision is to transform the area into vibrant destination for South Bristol, with new homes, great shops and leisure facilities
