Completed 12th century

St Peter's was a church in what is now Castle Park, Bristol, England.

The church has Saxon foundations, with a 12th-century lower tower, the rest of the church being built in the 15th century. Excavations in 1975 suggest that this was the site of Bristol's first church; the 12th-century city wall runs under the west end of the present church. It was bombed in the Bristol Blitz of 1940 and ruined. It is maintained as a monument to the civilian war dead of Bristol.

It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[1]
