Who is Samuel Burleigh Gabriel?

Samuel Burleigh Gabriel was a Victorian architect who practised in Bristol. For a number of years he was in partnership with another architect called John Hicks, who later worked at Dorchester. Their offices were at 28 Corn Street, Bristol.

Gabriel designed parish churches for the Church of England and houses for private clients.

One of Gabriel's last commissions was Ashley House in Bristol for Sir Charles Wathen. Wathen served as Mayor of Bristol and contributed to the building of several of its public buildings. In 2008 there was a proposal to demolish Ashley House. SAVE Britain's Heritage responded by supporting a campaign for the building's retention.
