Redland Court
Redland Court
Mansion built in 1732-5 by local architect John Strachan for John Cossins, the son of a London grocer who married the daughter of a Bristol merchant and moved to Redland. From the mid 19th Century it was home to Bristol banker (and High Sheriff of Bristol from 1855-6), George O Edwards. After his death in 1883, it was sold and from 1885 it became home to Redland High School for Girls which had been founded 3 years earlier. This role ceased in the summer of 2017, with the school merging with Red Maids' School, with the combined school, to be known as Redmaids' High School, being based at the latter's site in Westbury-on-Trym. The Redland Court site has been sold to developers.

The main building is grade II* listed as are the gates (on the left of the photo) - see LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link respectively.
