Location

The Meeting House is in Hampton Road, opposite the Clyde Arms public house, approximately one and a half miles from the city centre, about 20 minutes walk but uphill all the way! Hampton Road runs parallel to Whiteladies Road, a couple of hundred yards to the east.

Cars: Limited parking in surrounding streets. Residential parking zone in operation, but not at weekends.

Buses: 8 and 9 follow a circular route from Temple Meads and City Centre to the Apsley Road stop on Whiteladies Road. Buses 1, 2, 3 and 4 go from the Centre up to Whiteladies Road (1 and 2 also pass the station approach road at Temple Meads). From the Apsley Road stop on Whiteladies Road, walk down Redland Park (opposite River Cottage) to the Meeting House. The Severn Beach train from Temple Meads (hourly service on Sundays) stops at Clifton Down, a little further down Whiteladies Road, so you can also walk from there to Redland Park and turn right.

The Meeting Today

Redland is a fairly large meeting, with typically about 60 members and attenders at the main Sunday Meeting for Worship. There are children’s classes every week, children joining Meeting for Worship for the first fifteen minutes, and again at the end. The Meeting House is in an attractive residential area to the north of the city centre.
