St. Mary Redcliffe is an Anglican parish church located in the Redcliffe district of Bristol, England. The church building was constructed from the 12th to the 15th centuries, and it has been a place of Christian worship for over 900 years. Lockey was rector of Swainswick near Bath and photographed architecture and landscapes, mostly in Somerset and South Wales in the 1850s. Lockey made negatives 8 x 11 inches and often made prints for use in a Wheatstone stereoviewer. Many of Lockey’s negatives survive in the collections of St. Fagan’s, Cardiff and the Bath Literary and Scientific Institute.
