St. Nicholas Church (Gloucester)

St. Nicholas is one of the several historic churches in the old city of Gloucester.

It stands in Westgate Street, close to Gloucester Cathedral and opposite Bishop Hoopers Lodgings.

St. Nicholas is widely known for its truncated tower that is noticeably out of its true alignment.

The South doorway and parts of the arcades in the nave are Norman, but the church was mostly rebuilt in the 13th century.

Two centuries later, a spire was added, but this was badly damaged during the Civil War and removed for fear of falling, being replaced with a coronet.

St. Nicholas is no longer used for regular worship, and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
