St Paul and 14-17 Portland Square, Bristol
The south-east corner of this plain but stately Georgian square, laid out, with the surrounding streets, by the architect Daniel Hague from c1787 (though not completed until c1823). Each house, in Bath stone, is of three storeys plus basement and attic, the end houses a storey higher, three bays wide, with a rusticated ground floor, and good pedimented doorcase. Grade I listed.
Hague was also responsible for the Gothick church, 1789-94, whose lofty tower has five stages in all. Grade I listed.
The church closed in 1988 and since 2005 has been occupied by Circomedia, "a drama school for circus performers, and a school for physical actors."
