The former St Jude's parish church

St Jude's is an area of central Bristol, England. It takes its name from the former Church of England parish church of St Jude the Apostle, which was designed by Samuel Burleigh Gabriel and completed in 1849.[1]

St Jude's is east of the Broadmead shopping area. The main car park for Cabot Circus is there. Part of the land of St Jude's was also annexed to Broadmead for the construction of Cabot Circus in 2006.

An excavation, of a proposed residential development on a site of 1,260m² at the corner and on the north-west side of Little Anne Street and Wade Street, uncovered 18th century artisan's houses which were removed in the years on either side of the Second World War as part of a so-called 'slum clearance' project. Census records and other primary sources suggest that a property within the bounds of the study site, 26 Wade Street, served as a pipe factory, while several pipemaking families and individuals resided within the area.[2]
