St Bartholomew’s Church

The lovely Church, dedicated to St Bartholomew, was partly rebuilt in the 1800’s, has a rich array of battlements, pinnacles and fearsome gargoyles, as well as a variety of animals, angels, medieval folk and dragons carved on it’s corbel table. The Tower is mainly 13 th and 15 th century, the nave has 13 th century arcades and is crowned with a fine modern roof with rich wall plates and 14 angels on the hammerbeams. Containing a pedestal pulpit, richly carved altar rails and some excellent stained glass and the hourly striking clock - notable for not having a face - a gift from a farmer churchwarden who wanted the men in the fields to hear the passing hours but said that if other people wanted to know the minutes they could look at their own clocks - combine to make this a beautiful Church. August 24th is ‘St Bartholomew’s Day!’
